Canning Adventure: Tomato Jam
I recently came across a recipe for Tomato Jam and have been thinking about nothing else since then, so I decided to whip up a batch. The recipe, from Food in Jars, called for some interesting ingredients including fresh ginger, lime juice, and red pepper flakes. The resulting jam is a little sweet, a little spicy, and a little tangy. It will taste great over a soft cheese with crackers!
About 8 pounds of tomatoes yielded 3 pints with about a cup and a half left over to try. Not terribly impressive yields, but the tomatoes did need to cook down a lot!
