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 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.

One of our grandsons and I will be making this tomorrow night, putting it up in 4oz. jars. This way we can give it to more folks. Basil is from my garden. Tomatoes from grocery store. Next batch will be with canned tomatoes and Rosemary, then my tomatoes should be ready and I might have enough to make one jar. It is so dry in Katy Texas.
