Heirloom Tomato Marmalade

I was wondering what this would taste like! After lunch yesterday, I had scraps from some heirlooms and decided to make this jam. This has lemon and orange peel in it, so I suppose it is more like a marmalade. It's also sweet, which is a weird surprise. I will have it on cheese and crackers, on french bread with goat cheese, or maybe in a tart.

3 cups tomatoes, chopped
one lemon, juice and peel
orange peel
1/4 cup raw sugar
1/4 cup light brown sugar
pinch of salt

Mix and simmer it all in an uncovered saucepan for a couple of hours until it is cooked down to half. Will keep in fridge for a few days or in freezer forever.

Love your blog!

Up here in Portland we're using tomatoes in all kinds of sweet things - the kitchen I work in regularly makes yellow tomato jam, and Clyde Common just did a cherry tomato tarte tatin.
