Tomato Jam


Keeping up with Jack's garden could become a full time job! He has a lot of cherry tomatoes at the moment, so I thought I'd make some jam.

I used this recipe.  Another recipe that I'd looked at suggested squashing the little tomatoes as they cooked. I used a potato masher to do that, which worked really well. Two pounds of tomatoes made two jars of jam and I've managed to reduce the number of tomatoes lurking on the windowsill and in the fridge. 


  1. Years ago, I made a tomato and hot pepper jam from a recipe I found on a dish. The dish is long gone, and I didn't write down the recipe. Everyone was hesitant to try it, but it was great on top of crackers with cream cheese. How do you use yours?

    1. On crackers with cream cheese sounds good. Or just on toast with cheese perhaps. It’s many years since I made tomato jam so I’ll have to experiment.

  2. I’ve never heard of tomato jam before but it’s certainly solved a problem and left you with no excess tomatoes to throw away!!!

  3. Best to get those lurkers into jars!

  4. You are efficiently juggling several full-time jobs, and excelling at each 😃💞

  5. You should have full cupboards for the winter time!! :)

  6. Never made jam or used tomatoes to make chutney, I still have a few on the windowsill turning red, hope you enjoy his fruitful work during the winter.
