    When we made it using canned diced tomatoes, we drained them and measured to 6 cups. No blanching. We had more of the relish then indicated in your recipe so we thought we may have done something wrong. We used pectin and it was new and ours was watery as well. Maybe there is a knack to using pectin. It has gotten a little thicker but still is so delicious. We plan on making again so maybe we will use more pectin and see how we make out. Sorry for all the comments but as for the plate test, you do that before you put in the jars and it should not runny? I would hate to go through all the work and money and it be a wreck! Guess you can always add more, not remove it. Thanks again, appreciative all your helpful hints and who knows, maybe it is helping others.
