This delicious tomato jam is a great way to transform summer tomatoes into a tasty spread! It’s incredible on a burger, toast, eggs, bagels, and more!


  • 1 lb Roma tomatoes, cored and roughly chopped
  • ½ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon salt



  1. Pulse the tomatoes, brown sugar, shallot, lemon juice, ginger, cumin, and salt in food processor until coarsely ground, about 8 pulses.
  2. Transfer mixture to a large non-stick skillet and bring to a boil over medium heat.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until mixture is reduced and thickened, about 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer tomato jam to a jar and let cool.
  4. Store in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
