Instructions

  1. Peel and remove the skins from the tomatoes.
  2. In a large saucepan add the tomatoes, sugar, cinnamon stick and lemon juice, and raise the heat to medium while stirring constantly. With a wooden spoon mash down on the tomatoes to give a smooth and even consistency to the jam.
  3. Once it reaches a boil, reduce the saucepan to low heat, and let it simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the jam has thickened (you can tell it has properly thickened if you can make a line in the saucepan with the spoon).
  4. Once it has cooled down, pour into the jar and close it tightly.

It should remain fresh for up to a month.

Yummy, I just made this, I was gifted ripe tomatoes and it was like going back in time to the 60’s back to my hometown, Estarreja in Portugal to my childhood kitchen when my mom made this, so delicious I had to try it, I haven’t eaten this in over 30 years…it come out great, the only thing I made different was adding a little more lemon juice, it come out great, thanks
