Tomato Honey

The following recipe was transcribed ver batim from 

Peterson's Magazine

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

July, 1859

To each pound of tomatoes allow the grated peel of one lemon, and six fresh peach leaves; boil them slowly till they fall to pieces; then squeeze them through a bag; to each pint of liquid allow a pound of sugar, and the juice of one lemon; boil all together half an hour until it becomes a thick jelly; then put it into glasses, and lay double tissue paperover the tops. This preparation can scarcely be distinguished from real honey.
