What do you do with all of these beautiful Yellow Cherry Tomatoes?
I wanted to preserve some of this amazing color!
I started looking for recipes and came a cross a lot of Tomato Jam recipes, Yes, Tomato Jam! I know it sounds a little strange..right..I thought so too!
Some recipes were savory others sweet, then I found a couple that called for Lemon and Ginger…I was intrigued enough to give it a try
It took quite a long time to cook off the water from these beauties..
Well, it was worth the effort, this is packed with Flavor!
Let me tell you, what a pleasant surprise !
Now, I want to make more 🙂
Here’s the recipe:
3 lbs of Yellow Cherry Tomatoes
1 1/4 lb of sugar ( more if you like it sweeter)
Grated Rind of 3 Lemons (I used organic)
6-7 Tbsp. Lemon juice or more to taste( revised) did not use enough last time (2016) had to throw away several jars.
1 1/2 inch grated fresh ginger, this could be altered to taste
I follow these cooking instructions for jam from The High Heel Gourmet
then they go into a hot water bath .
