Default Tomato Marmalade Spread

Those recipes are very similar to several recipes I have. I love them. Here's one you can freeze for those folks that don't want to do the water bath or a big batch. It is great dolloped on top of some cream cheese!

Tomato Marmalade Spread

2 lbs ripe tomatoes (about 5 medium)
2 medium lemons (2-4 oz size)
1 medium orange (6-7 oz size)
2/3 cup sugar
2 Tbsp orange flavored liqueur

Cut tomatoes into 1-inch chunks; you should have about 6 cups. Slice lemons and orange very thin, discarding end pieces and seeds.

Place tomatoes, lemons and orange in a 4-quart saucepan over high heat. Stirring often, bring to a boil. Reduce heat and continue to stir often as the spread boils for 25 to 30 minutes, or until peels are tender and translucent. Stir in sugar, and cook rapidly, stirring often, for 15 minutes.

Remove from heat, stir in liqueur (if desired). Ladle into hot, sterilized jars or several freezer containers, cool, cover tightly, label, and refrigerate or freeze.
