Tomato Citrus Jam
Recipe Type: Condiment
Serves: 1 cup
This is a tomato condiment to crave. With cinnamon and orange zest to give it acidity and depth of flavor, this tomato spread is perfect on sandwiches.
  • 1½ pounds ripe Roma tomatoes, peeled and coarsely chopped (about 8)
  • ½ cup of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
  • ½ orange, pulp and juice only
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¼-1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper (optional)
  1. To remove the skin from the tomatoes, bring a pot of water to a boil. Cut an X on the top of each tomato and add to boiling water. After one minute, remove and let cool for a minute or two. The skin should peel easily in your hands. Cut tomatoes into medium sized pieces.
  2. Add the tomatoes and remaining ingredients to a medium sauce pan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Stirring often to prevent jam from burning. Once jam has boiled for one minute, reduce heat to a simmer and let jam thicken. Again, stir it every once in a while. The jam should take about an hour to reduce and thicken up.
  3. Remove from heat, taste and adjust seasonings. Store in refrigerator. Good for two weeks.
