Preserve the summer's harvest in this tomato jam.

With just enough sweetness to tow the line between a condiment for roasted and grilled meats and a treat to slather on a toasted baguette, this recipe is a great way to preserve summer's bounty.


3 1/2 pounds tomatoes, coarsely chopped
1 small onion, diced
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon coriander
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/4 cup cider vinegar
Juice of 1 lemon
1/2 cup finely diced tart green apple


  1. Combine all ingredients in a 2-quart pot. Bring to a gentle boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Cook until thickened to a jam-like consistency, about 3 hours.
  2. Transfer to sterilized glass jars and store in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks, or use a hot-water canning bath for 15 minutes for long-term storage.
