ingredients

  • 250 g tomatoes (whatever variety is ripest)

6. Cool completely before serving.

tips & tricks

Store the jam in scalded jars and in the refrigerator to prolong the shelf life. If you make a large portion, rinse the jars with some sodium benzoate first. This improves their shelf life even more.
