Tomato Jam

You’re going to love my easy recipe for old-fashioned Tomato Jam. It’s sweet and spicy with complex yet familiar flavors that can transform even the simplest food into something delicious.


Thank you! This is one of those things I have been looking for. The best appetizer I’ve ever had was a wedge of Brie, roasted garlic, tomato jam, a few baby greens,all served with pita points.

— Cherry tomatoes — Sugar — Lime — Ginger — Cinnamon — Red pepper flakes


Cut the tomatoes in half or quarters depending on their size.


Combine the tomatoes, sugar, lime zest, lime juice, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, salt, and red chili flakes in a large non-reactive pot.


Bring the mixture up to a rolling boil, then reduce the heat to low and maintain a steady simmer.


Cook for 1 to 2 hours, stirring regularly until the tomatoes become a soft, sticky, jammy consistency.
