Tomato Ginger Jam

Makes about 2 cups.


  • 12 ripe local tomatoes, chopped or 1 28-ounce can of ripe tomatoes

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 1 cup red wine vinegar

  • 1/4 cup grated fresh ginger

  • 2 bay leaves

  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt


  • 1.

    Put the tomatoes into a pot with the sugar, red wine vinegar, ginger, salt and bay leaves. Bring to a boil then simmer until thickened to a jam consistency, about 30 minutes.


The easiest way to grate ginger is to first freeze it, then grate it with a microplane grater into a powder. You may also use the smallest holes on a standard box grater.
