Pineapple and Tomato Jam

Take 6 large pineapples, peel and cut into small pieces, take 15lb of tomatoes, plunge into boiling water, so that the skins come off easily; mix with the pineapple and stew gently till the latter is soft, then add ¾lb sugar to each lb of the mixture, and boil till it is done. If liked omit the tomatoes, but the above are very nice mixed.
