This comes from a PBS show - Pati's Mexican Table. Looks lovely!!!!
- 1 lb tomatillo (husks removed, rinsed and roughly chopped)
- 1 1⁄2 cups sugar
- 1 cup water
- 4 tablespoons lime juice
- 1 lime rind (or whole or chopped)
- 1 pinch salt
- Place all of the ingredients into a saucepan set over medium heat. Let them come to a simmer and stir occasionally, letting them cook until it has thickened and achieved a soft and loose jam consistency, about 35 to 40 minutes.
- Don't wait until it has thickened too much, because it thickens considerably as it cools. Once it has cooled down, pour it into a container, cover tightly and refrigerate.
Used our first home grown tomatillos today, to make this jam. It is delicious. I will definitely plant tomatillos next year, so I can make enough Tomatillo and Lime Jam to can. One pound of tomatillos makes 1 pint of jam. The recipe is simple and the jam is a breeze to make. My DH loves it too.
