Herbed Tomato Jam

Updated: Oct 17, 2023

As I was writing and testing sweet and savory jams this Herbed Tomato Jam quickly became one of my favorites. The best way to eat it is on a toasted baguette with cream cheese. Yum! When we were canning this for the video, Emmaline’s husband came for a visit and we gave him a sample. At first, he didn’t want to bother us with the time it took to make him a sample, but once he gave in his enjoyment was audible. Responses to our canning such as those he gave us are what compels us to continue to try new recipes that our families will love. This Herbed Tomato Jam is one that everyone seems to love.

Filling Jars

Filling and Processing Jars of Herbed Tomato Jam:

Fill the jars leaving 1/4-inch headspace.

Use a chopstick to remove any air bubbles.

If you spilled on the edge or rim of the jar, use a clean cloth to wipe the rim clean.

Place the lid on top of the jar and add the ring. Tighten the ring to fingertip tight.

Process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes if at sea level. Remember to adjust your processing time if you are above 1000 feet in elevation.

Done processing your jam and remove them from the water bath canner.

Processing Complete

Once your jars have completed processing, use the jar lifter to remove them from the boiling water bath canner. Space the jars about an inch apart on the counter for 24 hours to cool and completely seal.

If your jar did not seal, then place it in the refrigerator and use it immediately.

Store the sealed jars in your pantry to enjoy for the next 1-3 years. After three years the nutritional value of canned food diminishes. The quality is best during the first year.
