I had some orange color tomatoes I didn't know what to do with so I thought I'd try this recipe. Instead of jalapeno peppers I used chili pepper, no green peppers (yuk), and since I was freezing it I skipped the alum. The tomato paste helped turned it to a reddish color but it was such an oh so pretty orange. I didn't use as much sugar since this was a very sweet variety of tomato anyway.Turned out very good.

Wow. This recipe deserves at least 27* and a lot more reviews. It's no more work to make an entire recipe than a scaled down version and you get the bonus of picante sauce in the freezer anytime you need it. I used a 28oz can of diced tomatoes and cut the sugar in half. I will reduce that to 2T next time. No need for the alum. This is going to work wonderfully in sooo many recipes.

Spot on. But who needs 3 pints of sauce? Buy one large tomato and scale accordingly for more than you'll use on your next enchilada night.
