Are your tomatoes all getting ripe now at once like mine are? This is so good on hamburgers, steak, purple-hull or crowder peas, or speckled butterbeans.

1 gallon tomatoes, chopped
8 whole onions, chopped
4 stalks celery, chopped
4 whole bell pepper, chopped
4 jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
3 cups white vinegar
3 cups granulated sugar
3 tablespoons salt
3/4 teaspoon allspice
3/4 teaspoon cloves
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1 tablespoon black pepper

Combine all ingredients in a heavy pot and cook at least one hour. Taste and adjust seasonings.

Wash pint jars in dishwasher - keep hot. Boil caps and rings. Fill hot jars and seal, turning upside down until cool.

Yield: 8 pints
