Gingered Tomato Marmalade- a unexpected treat!
I’m always open to new ideas, on the lookout for something delicious and different. This is one of those recipes. Tomato marmalade? Give it a try!
5 cups coarsely chopped peeled tomatoes (about 2 1/2 lbs)
2 large oranges
4 cups granulated sugar
3 tbsp finely chopped peeled gingerroot added during the cooking (optional)
Place tomatoes in a large stainless steel or enamal saucepan
Halve and seed the oranges and lemon. Finely chop fruit in food processor or blender and add to the tomatoes. Bring the mixture to a full boil over high heat. Slowly add the sugar, stirring until the sugard is completely dissolved. Return to a boil and boil rapidly until mixture forms a gel, about one hour, stirring frequently. Removce from heat.
Ladle into sterilized jars and process in a boiling water bath for approx. 15 minutes.
