Im just wondering something...when u say remove from heat, place preserves in jars and cover...then you say pour preserves into sterlizied confused. Any clarification? Im a little slow this morning.. what do you mean by cover? And arent your preserves already in jars? seems to me you would pour preserves into sterilized jars seal and process not understanding the two step process. thanks

This recipe was excellent! Just like I remembered. I had no scale for weight, so I guessed the amount of sugar, after reading some other recipes. Turned out perfect. :)

So far, this is the best Tomato Preserve Recipe that I have tried. This one is so good... I think my searching is over. Great with fresh biscuits and butter.
