  • lbs heirloom tomatoes cored and coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 tbsp fresh ginger peeled & grated
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes more if desired
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • Sea salt to taste


  • Heat a heavy bottomed pot over medium high heat.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes, sugar, lime juice, ginger, cumin, cinnamon, crushed red pepper flakes, cloves, and sea salt, to taste.
  • Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low, and simmer for 1 hour and 15 minutes, making sure to stir it often to avoid burning the bottom.
  • The mixture will start out very watery but will cook down to a jam like consistency.
  • Pour the mixture into an airtight container once it has cooled.
  • Store in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks.
  • Side Note: [/i]Before I pour the cooled jam into a jar, I remove a few of the tomato skins, but leave some because they give a nice texture to the jam.
