Tomato Jelly

I love using this jelly on baked brie cheese. I take the brie and wrap it in philo dough and spread the tomato jelly over top and bake until browned. Then spread the cheese on crackers or crusty bread. The fresh taste of the tomatoes give this jelly a unique taste. Something different to do with canning tomatoes. If the jelly doesn't set up the first time just put it back on the stove and bring to a boil again and add another pouch of pectin and repeat the process.
