Do you know what’s better than homemade jam?
Homemade tomato jam with raspberry and a little kick!
I have always loved homemade jam! I like that I can put anything and everything into it and make it taste good.
When I was in New Jersey, I used to always make raspberry jam at home and it tastes so good!! New Jersey always had amazing raspberries that I would get from farmer’s market
My friend Deb who blogs at Bowl-Me-Over.com is a genius when it comes to making jams. She sent me so many of her homemade jams and I have licked-clean all the jars. You have to try her homemade strawberry preserves which is beyond delicious!
But, I had never made tomato jam at home before and I thought it was time to make some of it.
My friend’s mother had added cinnamon to her tomato pickle and that just blew my mind! I never thought that you could put those two together and make a wonderful jam. I bought 4 jars from her that day!
Over the years, I have tried this recipe without any success and eventually, came up with a version of my own. I call it the “Tomato and Raspberry Jam”. Not very creative, I know. It is descriptive, though.
In my version, I add raspberry to it and it makes it taste awesome. Also, this recipe is better with all the seeds of the tomatoes and the raspberries. Don’t let the seeds be a turn off.
But, don’t take my word for it. Make it for yourself and then come tell me how your recipe turns out.
This jam can also be frozen for months. So, feel free to make it from fresh garden grown tomatoes. You can enjoy the jam throughout winter.
If you have a slow cooker or a crock pot, you will love my crock pot blackberry jam
I also used this recipe in a roasted plum dessert with mango compote. It turned out to be a GREAT dessert.
