This super easy Tomato Jam is a great way to bottle up all the goodness of tomato season and make it last just a little bit longer!


  • 1 pound tomatoes*
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon good quality balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger 
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves


  1. Bring all the ingredients together to a simmer in a small saucepan on medium-low heat, stirring occasionally.  
  2. After about 35-45 minutes, the liquid will thicken and reduce by about half.  When it is thick and jammy and coats a wooden spoon, it is ready.  Cool, and then store in a covered jar in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.  


*If using larger tomatoes rather than cherry size, core and chop them first.
