My maiden attempt at making jam and yay it was a success! We recently tried out some awesome sliders at a restaurant that serves it with tomato jam. Until then I hadn’t even heard of such a thing. It tasted really good and with the sliders and most importantly hooked my kids to it! They just fell head over heels in love with the whole thing. Now i cannot take them there everytime they have a craving for it, it’s only a hundred miles away from home. I cannot deny them the joy of having it again and soon so what’s a mom supposed to do? She recreates it at home using her magic wand! That’s exactly what i did and because my intention was so good (are you rolling your eyes at me) ..i mean it it was pure love for my kids (ok you got me, i wanted to eat it again too, is that a crime? LOL!) it came out really good! I can’t wait to make the sliders with this once it cools! Read on for this easy and delish recipe! Happy jamming!
Transfer it to a thick bottomed non-stick pan. Add sugar and start cooking it on a medium flame
Add all the remaining ingredients and let it cook
(OPTIONAL)If you do not like the skin and seeds of the tomato you can filter it using a strainer
(OPTIONAL) This step is optional depending on your preference (my kid doesn't like the tomato skin so i was forced to do this the second time i made this) Pour it back into the pan and boil it till it thickens
Once it comes to a boil let it simmer for about 25 mins till it thickens to a jam consistency
Transfer it to hot sterilized jam jar (i washed the jar well with hot water and microwaved it for a minute)
Close the lid, invert it and let it cool! Store it in the refrigerator. It should be good for upto a week.
