Peel and seed the tomatoes, saving the juice. Chop enough into small dice to make one cup. Puree the rest, and add enough of the reserved juice to make 3 l/2 cups (if short, add a little canned tomato juice)

Combine the diced tomato, bell pepper, onion, salt, black pepper, worcestershire sauce, tabasco and lemon juice. Set aside.
In a small saucepan warm the puree over low heat. Stir in the softened gelatin and stir to dissolve. Add the reserved diced-tomato mixture and taste for seasoning. Pour into a 6-cup mold and refrigerate for several hours. until set.
To unmold, place the mold in a pan of hot water long enough to loosen edges, cover with a serving place, and invert.
