Spicy Tomato Jam

This summer jam is so tangy and spicy and almost perfect for anyone’s taste buds. Use it anyway you like, whether on bread or on the top of a salad; simply yummilicious.

Makes: a bottle

Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds best quality tomatoes, cored and chopped – I prefer organic
  • 2 cups granulated sugar – Use 1 and a half cup if you don’t like it very sweet
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 2 teaspoons red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin

Method:

Combine tomatoes, sugar, lemon juice, ginger, red pepper flakes, salt, cinnamon, and cumin in a large, heavy-bottomed pot and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring frequently. Reduce heat and simmer until the mixture reaches a thick, jam like consistency, about two and a half hours. Stir in the pectin (if using) and simmer for one minute more.
