Tomato Jam

Tomato Jam Recipe

Got lots of tomatoes? Try making some fresh tomato jam. When fresh tomatoes aren't in season, you can use canned, diced tomatoes in this recipe.

Tomato Jam is a sweet and savory addition to chicken and fish.

During the day I am an associate professor and extension food specialist at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln. But at night I am a connoisseur of all things food. Eating locally is a great way to enjoy new and different foods. Visit your local farmers markets for seasonal produce. Your farmer and UNL-Extension are excellent resources for using local produce. See you at the market, yeh, we go too!
