My sister and I grew up with this jam so we have a particular fondness for it. It used to be a big seller at school fetes but sadly, you don't see it very often and I don't know why .... becuase it's delicious!
This recipe comes from my friend Maree who answered the call when I was desperately searching for a recipe about a year ago. Nicki and I are forever grateful!!
• 1kg tomatoes
• 1½kg sugar
• juice of 1½ lemons
Chop the tomatoes: you can skin them first if you like, but the skin 'candies' in the mixture, and adds interest and flavour to the jam.
Add the lemon juice and bring to the boil. Add the sugar and stir till dissolved. Boil fast till setting point is reached
