Spiced Tomato Jam

Serves: 5
Total Calories: 268
Yield: 4 jars


3 pounds tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped
1 orange, thinly sliced, seeded and chopped
1 lemon, thinly sliced, seeded and chopped
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup powdered calorie-free sweetener
1 (4-inch) cinnamon stick
7 whole cloves
1/2 cup water
1 (1 3/4-ounce) package powdered pectin, divided
4 (1/2-pint) canning jars and lids, sterilized


Combine first 7 ingredients in a large saucepan over medium heat. Simmer for 3 hours, stirring occasionally. In a separate saucepan, mix together water and half the pectin, reserving remaining pectin for another recipe. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat for one minute; add to tomato mixture, mixing well. Spoon into hot sterilized jars, leaving 1/4-inch headspace. Wipe rims; secure with lids and rings. Process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes; set jars on a towel to cool. Check for seals.

Tip: Add a special touch to jars of jams, jellies and salsas…glue a wooden letter or vintage typewriter key to the jar lid.
