Green Tomato and Ginger Jam

Here’s the recipe of the Green Tomato Jam I cooked for the Food Swap on Saturday at the Berlin Food week! Easy to make and delicious.

  • Dice the tomatoes and place in thick-bottomed pot.
  • Peel the ginger, slice it and chop into fine pieces.
  • Add together with the tomatoes, half a lime juice and the sugar.
  • Cook over a low heat for about one to two hours, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon.
  • To check if the jam is cooked: use the spoon to put a few drops onto a cold plate and watch the drop: if the drop “breaks” or runs when you tilt the plate then your jam isn’t ready, if they hold and don’t flatten, then it’s ready!
  • Pour into sterilised jars, close the lid and let them cool upside down to create a vacuum-seal.
