Golden Nugget Jam with Ginger

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..

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)

3 tsp Lemon juice or more to taste( I used a little more)

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 .

  1. That sounds good! One year I grew SIX Gold Nugget tomato plants. I can’t remember what I was thinking, but I do remember how many of those little tomatoes I had when all was said and done: a LOT! I was so sick of Gold Nugget tomatoes by the end of summer, I swore to never grow another one. But that jam sounds so good … maybe next year I’ll grow just a couple plants 😛

    1. I planted five last year, this year only three, which was more than enough for us! I think it would be worth growing them even if it’s only it for this recipe 😉
