Tired of making tomato sauce? Here’s a recipe for a wonderful jam.


4 cups ripe, fresh plum tomatoes, peeled and coarsely chopped
2 oranges, sliced thin and seeded
2 limes, sliced thin and seeded
4 cups sugar
3 tablespoons chopped fresh gingerroot
2 cinnamon sticks


Combine all ingredients in a large pot over low heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Simmer until the jam is thick and clear, about 1 to 1 ½ hours. Toward the end of the cooking time, stir often to prevent scorching. Remove cinnamon sticks and pour into sterilized jars. Process 10 minutes in boiling water.
