Jammin' in the New Year!!

YES... 
I have found THE perfect jam recipe!
TOMATO JAM
}cue angels singing{

This past summer, I found THIS recipe from Marisa at Food In Jars.

And let me tell you it has become a favorite of Cookie Man!
Sooo Perfect, I may change his name to 
"Tomato Jam Man"!
OK...not doing any name changes...as of now, 
but I will revisit the idea after another batch of this Tomato Wonder is made!!

It's great on Turkey Burgers
and the Cookie Man LOVES it in an egg burrito!

The recipe calls for every delicious morsel of the tomato to be used...
skin, seeds ...the WHOLE ENCHILADA!

Oh my!!
This spicy jam would be GREAT on my mom's enchiladas!!
*note to self...CALL YOUR MOM!!

The last couple of times I made the jam, it took me 2 hours to finely chop the tomatoes!

2 HOURS!!

 I have 4 kids 5yo and under...
PLEASE TELL ME THERE IS AN EASIER WAY!!

HELLO!!!
}cue angels singing...AGAIN!{

See this...

It's my juicer! 
And I LOVE IT!
I love it so much I may change my name to 
"Vallima-joos"!
*wink- he he

OK...but seriously, it has revolutionized MY Tomato Jam making!

I simply juiced the 5 pounds of tomatoes then threw the pulp in the pot!!!

 BAM!!
Done in 5 minutes!!
Added the ingredients!

and went from this

 to this...

 in 2 hours!
  

What can you do in the New Year to 'Lighten your load', in the kitchen or around your home?

This looks delicious. I love to serve tomato jam with cream cheese and crackers. This really sounds good. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary
