  • Spiced Tomato Jam
    by Carol Hall
    September 2005
    It was early couldn't wait to plant a garden! You carefully planted those little tomato plant seedlings and watered them lovingly as they grew and flourished. It is now late summer....and you have eaten sliced tomatoes, tomato sandwiches, tomato salad, garnished virtually every meal with tomatoes, and much to your surprise....the rest of your enormous crop has now decided to ripen ALL AT ONCE!

    Your friends and neighbors no longer answer the door when they see you with yet another bag of "tomatoes". The vegetable drawer in your fridge runneth over with "tomatoes". "Now what?!?" you wonder...

    Well, here is a great way to finish off that bumper crop, and enjoy an unusual treat until next year when you will do it all again!...


    3 cups tomatoes
    1/ 1/2 tsp grated lemon rind
    1/4 cup lemon juice
    1/2 tsp Allspice
    1/2 tsp cinnamon
    1/2 tsp cloves
    4 1/2 cups sugar
    1 box SureJell (or Certo)

    Peel, cut up and simmer 2 1/2 lbs of tomatoes for 10 minutes. Measure out 3 cups of the cooked tomatoes and add all the rest of the ingredients except Surejell. Bring the mixture to a full rolling boil, then add the Surejell and boil for 1 minute.

    Follow the canning instructions on the box of Surejell and enjoy a delectable tasty jam the rest of the year!
