Tomato Jam

When I was a little child, I had tomato jam, spread on bread (I think). I have looked for it many times, and haven't ever been able to get it. I would like to find the recipe.

Thanks so much!

Here is a Yellow Tomato Jam post with some recipes in the feedback. It seems like it would work for any tomatoes.

And I pulled out my trusty Joy Of Cooking and I found this recipe. I haven't tried it but maybe I will, if my tomatoes ever start growing. We are having a late growing season this year.

Tomato Preserves

Scald and skin 1 lb. tomatoes. Yellow tomatoes may be used with especially fine results. Cover tomatoes with an equal amount of sugar. Let stand 12 hours. Drain the juice. Boil it until the syrup falls from a spoon in heavy drops. Add the tomatoes and the grated rind and juice of 1 lemon or 2 thinly sliced seeded lemons, 2 oz. preserved ginger or 1-4 inch stick cinnamon. Cook the mixture until thick.

This is intended to be canned in a water bath. I thought it was interesting that they recommended yellow tomatoes too :)

Let us know what you try and how it turns out.

I'm not sure if this is what you are looking for, as this is a recipe you make with green tomatoes, but I know I've made this several times & it's awesome. I've served it to many people over the yrs. and no one can tell the "secret" ingredient & they all love it. It's also really easy. :) Try it, you won't be disappointed.


Add 4 cups sugar to 5 cups ground up green tomatoes. Bring to a rolling boil & cook for 10 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat & add 1 large pkg. gelatin (rasp., cherry, strawberry, etc.). Seal in glasses or jars, or freeze. Yes, you can even freeze this.
