Tomato Preserves

A schmear of this on a ham & cheese sandwich...mmmmmm! Now that's good eatin', I don't care who you are! Plan to make several different colored batches - red, black, yellow & orange. I suspect this is a good candidate for hot water bath canning, given how long it is cooked & the high acidity & sugar content.
