Strawberry Tomato Jam
With the assurance of OPOS and this video for guidance, and Sri's trial of this combination - I finally found the courage to make it. I was so excited when Sri posted her Jam recipe. So simple (too good to be true) to procastinate. She has also tried jam with a combination of ginger. Substitute the fruits with grapes and use a 2" ginger.
My jam jar was empty.
I did have the ingredients on hand.
No space for excuses.
I was glad I attempted it. I don't think I will go for the branded ones here forward.
Just one point - please weigh the ingredients. No shortcuts on this one.
Strawberry - 300 grams, chop or pulse coarsely in a mixie
Cherry Tomatoes* - 200 grams, chop or pulse coarsely in a mixie
Sugar - 300 grams
Lemon - 1, extract juice
In a 5 liter pressure cooker, add the strawberry-tomato slush. Top with sugar and lime juice.
Pressure cook on medium flame for 20 minutes. Please use a timer for accuracy.
Switch off and wait for pressure to settle.
It will thicken after a few hours. Store in clean sterilised bottles.
Cherry Tomatoes* - You may substitute with regular Roma (Apple) tomatoes after de-seeding. You don't want to keep removing them from your jam. Do you?
