Ingredients
  Ripe tomatoes 6 Pound (3 Kilogram)
  Granulated sugar 8 Ounce (225 Gram)
  Malt vinegar 1⁄2 Pint (300 Milliliter)
  Cayenne pepper 1 Pinch
  Salt 1 Tablespoon
  Ground cinnamon 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Ground ginger 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Ground cloves 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Ground mace 1⁄2 Teaspoon
Directions

1. Wash and quarter tomatoes and place in a preserving pan or large saucepan.
2. Cook slowly until soft, then boil rapidly to reduce them to a pulp.
3. Press the pulp through a sieve, return to the pan and stir in the sugar, vinegar, pepper, salt and spices.
4. Heat slowly over low heat to allow the sugar to dissolve completely; then bring to the boil and boil rapidly for about 5 minutes until it is quite a thick sauce.
5. Pour into sterilised dry bottles leaving 4 cm/1 1/2 inches unfilled at the top.
6. Scald the tops and screw on tightly.
7. To process, place on a trivet in a large saucepan and fill the pan with water to within 2.5 cm/1 inch of the tops of the bottles.
8. Heat the water to 80°C, 170°F, and simmer very gently for 20 minutes.
9. Remove the bottles and leave to cool before storing.
