Thanks to everyone who entered the Tomato Recipe Challenge. There were some fabulous recipes and I enjoyed making – and eating – them all. The Green Tomato Jam wins for a few reasons: it’s super easy to make; it’s unusual, and it is the perfect use for those unripe tomatoes. Oh, and it’s tasty tasty tasty!
Green Tomato Jam
5.5 cups of fresh green tomatoes, cored, peeled* and minced
2 cups of fresh raspberries, minced
3.5 cups of white sugar
Bring to a boil for about 15 minutes. Skim off foam. Place into sterilized, hot jars.
*I dropped the tomatoes into boiling water for a few minutes, then plunged them into cold water for handling. This makes them easy to peel.
Check back on Monday for the start of an exciting new contest!
