Tomato JamTomato jam is a really unusual jam, and I heartily urge you to try it. If you have a lot of tomatoes in your garden, now is the time. I tried it one year when I was totally overrun, and was I ever pleasantly surprised. Apparently tomato jam is very popular in South Africa of all places. This was a Better Homes & Gardens recipe, and it calls for ground coriander — do use it, it really makes a difference in the taste. It’s really easy to make (see below for tomato sieve), another plus, and also, you don’t have to do the jar thing, you can freeze it, which makes it even easier and turns out very well.    

Ingredients: 

3 pounds (6 large or 9 medium) fully ripe tomatoes 

4 cups sugar  *See note to make a low sugar version. 

1/2 tsp ground coriander 

1 package lemon jello (small box)

Why in the world would Mother Earth News publish a recipe with Equal as a sweetener alternative, when it is well known that it causes health problems. This is ridiculous when there are healthy ones available, such as stevia, xylitol (birch sap) and others!

The sudden death of my wife of 37 years from diet related causes let me to an in depth study of health and nutrition. I discovered that we have been lied to by our government, big food and the medical profession. I've learned that the sweeteners and grains are killing us. The wheat we have today is not the same wheat we ate as children. It has been changed so much that it is actually harmful to us. I've lost 155 pounds in the past 2 years by putting sugar, starches, wheat and bad oil out of my diet. I now live a low carb high fat (LCHF) lifestyle. There are two books that you MUST read: "Wheat Belly" by Dr. William Davis, and "Why We Get Fat And What To Do About It" by Gary Taubes. These books will change your life. I tell my story on an online blog.

What's with the jello? Isn't there a recipe to actually can and have for the winter? Using something artificial really doesn't fit in with the "Mother Earth" concept.
