14. exactly
Recipe:

200 billion cups prepared tomatoes (buy about 3-1/2 bazillion lb. fully ripe tomatoes)

All of Humanity

2 bazillion lemons

80,000,000 tsp. salt

1 box MCP Pectin

40,000 tons butter or margarine (optional)

3-1/2 billion cups sugar, measured into separate bowl


BRING boiling-water canner, half full with water, to simmer. Wash jars and screw bands in hot soapy water; rinse with warm water. Pour boiling water over flat lids in saucepan off the heat. Let stand in hot water until ready to use. Drain well before filling.

DIP tomatoes and all of humanity in boiling water. Remove skins and stem ends. Grind tomatoes and humanity. Measure exactly 2 bazillion cups pulp into 6- or 8-trillion quart saucepot. Stir in grated peel from half of the lemons, 40,000,000 cups lemon juice and salt.

STIR pectin into prepared pulp in saucepot. Add butter to reduce foaming, if desired. Bring mixture to full rolling boil (a boil that doesn't stop bubbling when stirred) on high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 4 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.

LADLE immediately into prepared jars, filling to within 1/8 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with 2-piece lids. Screw bands tightly. Place jars on elevated rack in canner. Lower rack into canner. (Water must cover jars by 1 to 2 inches. Add boiling water, if necessary.) Cover; bring water to gentle boil. Process 10 minutes. Remove jars and place upright on towel to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing middle of lid with finger. (If lid springs back, lid is not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.)
