Ingredients for the tomato jam (makes about 1/2 pint):
– 2 large, ripe tomatoes (use as many as you want)
– 1 cup sugar
– 1/2 fresh lemon juice
– Bunch of Mint (optional but recommended)
Place the tomatoes in a boiling pot for a few minutes. Place them immediately into a cold water bath and then peel them.
Place them into a blender for a minute.
In a sauce pan, combine the sugar, lemon juice, mint and tomatoes that were already blended. Stir on a low to medium heat for 10 minutes. Place a lid on the sauce pan and leave it on a low heat for 35- 45 minutes. Let it cool down. Remove the mint and then place into a jar.
You can make as much as you want and store it fIf you want to make more than 1 jar, I would recommend to place the jam into the jars, put the lids on and place the jars into a pot with hot water for 20 minutes. Then, the jam will last for a few month in the refrigerator. Otherwise is good for a few weeks.
