Tomato glut?

This sauce is seriously yummy. It smells good, the texture is perfect and the taste.... it's fresh and so not store bought!!
 It would also make a lovely hostess gift.

From the recipe below it yielded (is that the right word?) the four jars you see and another half full.
Spicy tomato sauce

4lbs (2kg) ripe tomatoes
1lb (500g) sugar
1 1/2 tspn ground cloves
1/4 tspn cayenne
15g ground black pepper corns
1lb (500g) onions
500ml malt vinegar
25g mixed spice
30g salt

Simmer all ingredients together for 2 hours. Sieve or mouli, then bottle.
Don't forget to sterilise those jars!
