This is a fabulous concoction. Try it on meatloaf, alongside a steak, with pork, or even on lunchmeat sandwiches!
Ya got me good with this one. Made the first batch with Roma tomatoes given to me by a neighbor and a second batch with an assortment of heirloom tomatoes given to me by yet another neighbor. Both were equally delicious. Hope to make more to cover what I've already gobbled up. I used basil from a tube of Gourmet Garden Basil Herb Blend as my fresh had suffered during the recent rain storms. It worked just great. Thanks for sharing this great go-with-anything condiment.
This jam is especially good and is easy to make! I think it makes an excellent accompaniment to poultry/fish/pork, any bread or omelette/quiche/frittata. I accidentally added 1/3c. of lemon juice instead of 1/4c. and it still turned out great. I used petite jelly jars (4oz) and got 9 full jars. For my needs, I knew I would only require condiment size servings per meal so I opted for the smaller jars which should serve 4-6. Very flavorful and a little goes a long way!
I made this last summer when I had lots of tomatoes and basil in my garden. I just served the last jar at a club luncheon, and it was such a hit, I have forwarded the recipe to several of the ladies who all loved it. I served it spread on top of softened cream cheese on water crackers.
Different. A little bit too basily for me but gave as gifts that were greatly enjoyed. Might be yummy on a burger too!
Just made this recipe and is it good! I changed it a little by adding just over 1/4 cup of Basil. I like the flavor. It's great on toast with a bit of brie or sharp cheese (blue - YUM).
Do you think this would work using canned diced tomatoes and skipping directly to step 7?
I made this tonight to take to work tomorrow for a food... I am going to pour it over cream cheese!! It's going to be a huge hit. Move over raspberry-jalapeno jam you've have some serious competition!!
I just decided to start trying canning jams and jellies. I was curious if I could find a recipe that used the wonderful things out in my garden, and stumbled across this. I have no clue how it will turn out, but I seriously wanted to gobble the whole thing down as I was tasting it before it went the jar. Who knew tomatoes could be used in a jam?!? The only thing I did different was to add caramelized onions. I can't wait to give these away for Christmas!!!!
2 1/2 pounds of tomatoes did not equal almost 7 cups of chopped peeled, seeded tomatoes in my kitchen. Hours of work with tomatoes and I have jars of sweet tomato soup. The measurements seem off to me.
