    3      C.            prepared tomatoes (about
    2 1/4  Lb.           ripe tomatoes)
    1 1/2  Tsp.          grated lemon rind
      1/4  C.            lemon juice (2 lemons)
    6 1/2  C.            sugar (2 lb. 14 oz.)
    1      Bottle        Certo fruit pectin
 
 First, prepare tomatoes. Scald, peel and chop about 2
 1/4 pounds fully ripe tomatoes. Heat tomatoes until soft. Put
 tomatoes through ricer to remove seeds. Measure 3 cups into a
 large saucepan. Add grated lemon rind and lemon juice.
 To make jam: To the measured fruit, add the exact
 amount of sugar. Mix well. Place over high heat; bring to a
 full rolling boil and boil hard for 1 minute, stirring constantly. 
 Remove from heat; at once, stir in Certo. Skim off
 foam with metal spoon. Then stir and skim for 5 minutes to
 cool slightly, to prevent floating fruit. Ladle into glasses.
 Cover at once with 1/8-inch hot paraffin. Seal jars and
 process 10 minutes in hot water bath.
