Tired of making tomato sauce? Here’s a recipe for a wonderful jam.
Yield: Makes about 3 pints
- 4 cups ripe, fresh plum tomatoes, peeled and coarsely chopped
- 2 oranges, sliced thin and seeded
- 2 limes, sliced thin and seeded
- 4 cups sugar
- 3 tablespoons chopped fresh gingerroot
- 2 cinnamon sticks
Combine all ingredients in a large pot over low heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Simmer until the jam is thick and clear, about 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Toward the end of the cooking time, stir often to prevent scorching. Remove cinnamon sticks and pour into sterilized jars. Process 10 minutes in boiling water.
