Tomato Jam Recipe



  • 4lbs tomatoes, the meatier the better.
  • 2 cups sugar (note, the ratio is 1/2 cup sugar to 1lb tomatoes)
  • chopped ginger (as much as you want)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • 2 jalapenos, chopped (remove seeds if you like)
  • juice from 3 lemons


Throw everything in a medium saucepan.  Stir together.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 1 hour and 15 minutes (give or take 15 minutes).  Stir often.  Remove jam from pot into a bowl to cool.  You can then pour it into containers to keep in the fridge or put into jars and given a hot water bath (boil for 40 minutes) and keep in the pantry.
