Instructions
  1. Wash tomatoes well and place them in a large pot and cook over medium to low heat, stirring occassionally. Depending on how many you do, this will take any where from 20-30 minutes.
  2. When they are soft and they have released juices, turn off the heat. Using a sieve, press the tomatoes, a few at a time, through the sieve to release the juice. You will end up with tomato skins and seeds, which are great composted or I feed them to my chickens, they love them.
  3. Have your clean, hot jars ready. An easy way to heat your jars, place on a cookie sheet and put into a 300 degree oven for approx. 10 minutes.
  4. Put the hot juice into the jars adding a teaspoon of salt. More or less to your liking. Place a hot lid and ring on the jar and place into your hot water bath canner or use a pressure canner. That's my preference but use what you have.
  5. If processing using a hot water bath, bring water to a boil, place jars into pan, making sure the jars are covered and return water to a boil and process for 10 minutes. If using a pressure canner, process for 25 minutes at 10 pounds of pressure.
  6. Remove hot jars and let cool, label and enjoy!

  1. Add the berries, water, cloves, ginger and cinnamon stick to a large pot and bring to a boil.
  2. Once boiling, reduce the berry mixture to a simmer. Allow to simmer for 30 minutes.
  3. After 30 minutes, remove from the heat. Using a potato masher, mash the berries (still in the now juice mixture) to remove any extra juices.
  4. Smash and think of the savings in the pot.
  5. Strain the berries from the juice. I use a cheesecloth and small mesh sieve over a bowl. Push the berries in the strainer down with the back of a wooden spoon to remove any extra juice.
  6. Stir in the honey. The berry mixture should still be warm, not hot, and just slightly warm.
  7. Keep in the fridge. Take 1 tablespoon daily by spoon or mix it in a smoothie.
