Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 lb. beefsteak tomatoes (4 tomatoes)
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, grated (2 cups)
  • 1 1/3 cups sugar
  • 2 Tbs. lemon juice
  • 2 tsp. grated lemon zest
  • 1 1/2 tsp. minced jalapeno chile

Preparation

Bring large pot of water to a boil. Cut an X on ends of tomatoes with knife, and drop into boiling water for 10 seconds. Remove, and cool in bowl of ice water. Peel and quarter tomatoes.
