I found this recipe in an on-line search years ago. I made a couple batches and decided I did not like to add so much sugar. I adapted it a little more and made in my own. Then I forgot about it. I came across the final jar last weekend. A dollop atop some goats milk cheese on fresh bread made an easy and elegant breakfast.
- 3 cups chopped green tomatoes
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup Orange Vanilla Sugar
- 3 oz. package Raspberry Jello
Microwave tomatoes for 6 minutes. Remove and add sugar. Combine well and microwave on medium heat for another 5 minutes. Stir Jello in until it is thoroughly dissolved.
Pour into jars while warm or cool and add to freezer bags. The jars can be sealed for longevity throughout a canning method. This jam makes great gifts. I am planning on giving them at Christmas with homemade chevre and bread.
More glorious gifts of food:
