An interesting twist that makes for a great topping. This marmalade features tomatoes, sugar, lemon, and cinnamon. Used to garnish dishes, such as pastas, rice, and meats. Required tools include canning jars and lids, and a pot large enough to submerse the jars.


  • 1.5 kilograms tomatoes (peeled and seeded)
  • 840 grams sugar
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon


  1. Boil the jars and lids for 30 minutes to sterilize and then wipe dry with a clean cloth.
  2. Place the tomatoes and sugar in a saucepan along with the lemon juice, rind, and cinnamon. Cook on medium heat until the tomatoes release their juices and the mixture begins to thicken and caramelize, after approximately 1 hour.
  3. Carefully fill the jars with the marmalade and close tightly. Place into a large pot, and boil for 30 minutes to seal.

Delicious! I diced the tomatoes into small cubes so the skin pieces were small. My first batch took 2 hours of simmering but certainly worth the time because the flavor is amazing!
