Easy Tomato Jam 

Easy Tomato Jam !

Easy Tomato JamI wish I had posted this recipe for  Easy Tomato Jam, six months back when summer was at its peak. But, it is never too late to share a good thing, so here we go…. Tomatoes are a staple ingredient in several Indian and perhaps all other cuisines as well. You will notice that tomatoes play an important role in my recipes.

So much that I also have grown tomato plants in my backyard and it has come in very handy at times. If you love tomatoes as much as I do, you will love the idea of enjoying such ripe tomatoes in ways you’d never imagine. Use it on your favorite sandwich or try it with roti’s. I’d say it is a very healthy alternative for store bought ketchup, especially if you are looking to avoid pectin in your diet.

Easy Tomato JamTomato Jam is actually quite simple to prepare. There are very few pitfalls you would to look for. Most importantly, be sure to adjust how much sugar and lemon juice you add, depending on how ripe your tomatoes are. You should also cook it long enough to evaporate the native water content from the tomatoes. Try this recipe today! I look forward for your comments and perhaps photos too!

Ingredients:

  • 4 Ripe tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cardamom powder
  • 1 tsp lemon juice

Directions:

  1. Wash the tomatoes and boil them just a little to soften the skin.
  2. De -skin the tomatoes and blend them well.
  3. Place a pan over medium heat and cook the tomato purée.
  4. As the puree thickens, add sugar and cardamom powder.
  5. Continue stirring for about an hour and add a teaspoon of lemon juice and continue to stir, until most of the water has evaporated.
  6. Switch off the heat and store it in air-tight canister.
