Make this easy tomato jam that will brighten all your foods from toast to burgers and sandwiches—just 40 minutes of total cook time and one pot for a deliciously sweet and savory condiment.
This jam is just perfect. This small batch recipe will last easily fridge for 4-6 weeks and cheer anything you spread it over.
The ingredients are pretty simple and pantry friendly.
Choose firm and fully ripened red tomatoes. Avoid soft or over-ripened tomatoes. Wash them thoroughly.
Roughly chop them into small chunks.
Add the brown and white sugars along with all the spices.
Mix well and bring it to a boil. Then reduce heat to low and cook covered for 15-20 minutes until tomatoes are soft.
Once the tomatoes are soft, simmer jam on medium heat for about 10 minutes with frequent stirring until it thickens.
When you see the pot of the pan while stirring as in the photo, jam is ready. The tomatoes are rich in pectin and will set on their own.
Transfer hot jam to clean dry jars. Let the jam cool then transfer it to the fridge. Allow 12 hours to set. The tomato jam stays good in the fridge for 4-6 weeks or just freeze it for 6 months.
