Green Tomatoes Jam

For this recipe, I like to use green cherries tomatoes, so that they don’t need to be peeled. However, if your tomatoes are big and have thick skin, you may need to peel them.
Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 35 mins
Total Time 10 hrs 50 mins


  • 1 kg green tomatoes
  • 3/4 inch ginger (optional)
  • 2 lemons
  • 650 g sugar


  • Cut the tomatoes into wedges. Peel and grate the ginger, and press the lemon.
  • In a pot, combine the tomatoes, sugar, ginger, and lemon juice. Cover and let sit all night.
  • The next day, remove the cover and bring to a boil. Then, reduce the heat and simmer for about 35 minutes, stirring frequently. Skim if needed. The cooking time depends of how much water is in the tomatoes. Don’t over cook. When the jam is cooled down, it will be less liquid.
  • Pour the jam into a clean jar and cover it with its lid.
