Jam & the Jar

Perfectly Made for Each Other

Tomato might not strike you immediately as the ultimate jam fruit, but then there’s no reason why it shouldn’t be. This particular jam has a subtle, aromatic basil taste, combined with a jalapeño kick, and can be perfectly preserved in a Consol glass jar for you to relish with some bruschetta and camembert.


Ingredients Needed

Amount Ingredient
700 g Tomatoes, cut into half (preferably plum or vine)
¾ cup Brown sugar
- Handful of basil
1 Lime, squeezed
1 Jalapeño, sliced
2 tbsp Mixed spices (cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves)
1 tbsp Chilli flakes
1 tbsp Paprika
Tomato Preparing


  1. Combine all of the ingredients into a saucepan.
  2. Bring the mixture to a boil, then allow to simmer on a low heat for 45 minutes.
  3. Once tomatoes have cooked and thickened, transfer the mixture into glass jars and refrigerate until ready for use.
