TOMATO CATSUP

4 qts. peeled, cored, chopped red-ripe tomatoes
1 c. chopped onions
1/2 c. chopped sweet red peppers
1 c. sugar
1 Tbs. salt
1 Tbs. paprika
1 1/2 tsp. celery seed
1 tsp. allspice
1 tsp. mustard seed
1 stick cinnamon
1 1/2 c. vinegar
Cook tomatoes, onions and pepper until soft. Press through a food mill or sieve. Cook rapidly until thick (volume is reduced by about one-half) about 1 hour. Tie whole spices in a cheese cloth bag; add with sugar and salt to tomato mixture. Cook gently about 25 minutes, stirring frequently. Add vinegar and paprika, cook until thick. As mixture thickens, stir frequently to prevent sticking. Pour boiling hot into hot sterilized jars, leaving 1/4-inch head space. Adjust caps. Process 10 minutes in boiling water bath.
Yield: 3 pints
