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.    


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)

I made it, but it is not so delicious, it has an interesting taste anyway!

These kind of foods are really good, at least that my opinion!
