No commercial product can capture the old-fashioned, not-too-sweet flavour of homemade tomato jam. The addition of chopped preserved ginger gives a pleasant touch of sharpness.
Took shortcuts. I LEFT OUT THE GINGER & USED EQUAL WEIGHT SUGAR AND TOMATOES + 3 LEMONS TO EACH KILO OF TOMS. LEFT EVERYTHING TO SOAK FOR 3 HOURS FOR THE SUGAR TO DISSOLVE THEN PURRED IT WITH HAND BLENDER. BRING TO BOIL AND MINE WAS AT SETTING POINT IN 30 mins. - 14 Nov 2009
my easy to make - dad used to add pineapple or passionfruit OR both - whacko on fresh taost and butter sometimes he would let it simmer until it just began to get darker (caramelise), then quickly remove from heat before it became toffee, woowww - good on ya dad - 01 Feb 2012
