Late crop of tomato has been sitting in my wire basket for almost two weeks few of these guys have been rotting in the basket, which I hate to see. One reason for this rotting was I needed 5 pounds to make a batch of tomato jam and I was shy of about a pound. My kind neighbor saw me raking our tomato plants and walks in with a concern face. I explained to him my challenge, he kindly said I think I have some ripe tomatoes.
Within few minutes he walks in with few pounds of tomatoes. I promise him a bottle of tomato jam and I was in business for making a small batch of tomato jam.
I have to admit this jam is a cross between a chutney and a very thick ketchup but tastes great. after canning the last jar I wiped the pot clean with a dinner roll. It smells and tastes great too!
