Top Review by Casa De Kitty Chef

Great recipe - wish real marmalade could be this easy. I made this with Lemon Boy tomatoes, to keep the yellow/orange color. This jam tastes great, however it didn't set well. Next time (this week), I’m going to add in a box of Sure Jell. I think the low acid of the Lemon Boy tomato is what kept it from setting.
