heirloom and sun-dried tomato jam

Another Meatless Monday, another homemade jam.

This jam is my jammy jam.

Savory sweet with vibrant flavor, this simple jam recipe takes no time at all, and pairs with so many things.

I buy tomato marmalade from a lady at the Memphis Farmers Market, and it’s soooooo good. I should try making my own!

Spabettie does it again. This one is another winner. It just sounds so absolutely wonderful.

A tomato jam…oh my. I love this idea. I wish I could get a hold of some better tasting tomatoes here these weeks. I will go on a hunt. I miss the ones we had in Italy this summer.

Fancy! 😀 I’ve been in a jam-making mood lately (hubby likes bread with jam, and I enjoy making homemade varieties). So far I’ve only used fruit, but tomatoes sound like a great idea. I also like those corn thingies. :)

How are you doing? I’ve been thinking so much of you lately, and I can imagine you’re still dealing with a lot of sorrow … probably mixed with gratefulness for your Dad’s happy last weeks among his loved ones. Must be a strange and very intense mix of emotions, if I’m right.

We have just really started our Spring season here in sunny ol’ Canberra. Our tomato seedlings are doing nicely (in their cosy makeshift green house). I know come January and February I will be swimming in ripe and overripe tomatoes. :)
Thank you for giving me another way to deal with some of them.
Any idea how long this would last in the fridge (assuming the jars were steralised and unopened)? Also, do you think it could be frozen?
Loving your work, as always. xx
