If you’ve been following my instagram, you’ll see that I’ve been flexing my green fingers this year and growing some tomatoes. It’s gone well…a little too well as I’ve got rather a glut of tomatoes on my hands now. I’d say I’ve probably harvested about 3kg since August which is a lot!. So as well as having copious amounts of home made tomato sauce I decided to make some delicious tomato and chilli jam which I’d made last Christmas and had gone down a storm. I’ll be handing these out again this Christmas as they make really nice home made gifts.
This recipe is adapted from the BBC website, I could have made my own version but this one is so good that I thought “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”.
I’ve used a bigger ratio of cherry tomatoes to plum, simply because of cherry tomatoes coming out of my ears, and I’ve omitted the ginger as, well I didn’t have any and it tastes pretty good without.
