Happy First Day of April!  Since April is National Florida Tomato Month and I live in Florida, I thought I would start the month off with a Green Tomato Strawberry Jalapeño Jam.

I found this recipe on Taste of Home as a green tomato jam recipe made with raspberry gelatin.  I have adapted it to spice it up a little, because that is how I roll “Spicy”.  I also wanted to use a strawberry flavor. The wonderful thing about this Jam is you can really adapt the gelatin to your taste!

The tomato crop is just beginning and you want something to do with your green tomatoes, other than those fabulous fried green tomatoes that are so glorious and fried to perfection!  Ok – I know some people may say green tomatoes in Jam?? You really do not even know there are green tomatoes in this Jam.  Although I think Green Tomatoes are just amazing for so many recipes!  One great way is Southern Verde Sauce made by my friend Whitney Miller. It is to die for and good on so many things!  Okay I diverted but oh so worth it 😉 Back to the Green Tomato Strawberry Jalapeno Jam deliciousness.

I love this jam on Savory Cheesy Thumbprint Cookies -CLICK HERE for RECIPE!! Just think of the ways to serve this! It’s great on toast in the morning to SPICE up your day.  Make an appetizer with a block of cream cheese. Pour the jam over the cream cheese and serve with those oh so delectable buttery crackers!  You know the fancy “RITZ” ones.  Or, if you’re all by yourself just smeared on a cracker with cream cheese YA….UM.  What ways can you think to serve this GEM of a JAM???

Ready to make it?? Puree your tomatoes and sliced jalapeños in a blender or food processor.  Grab a large saucepan, pour in tomatoes, jalapeños, and sugar. Bring to a boil.

Green Tomato Boiling

Reduce the heat, add gelatin (Jell-O) and simmer for 20 minutes.  Make sure you keep stirring the pot!  Just don’t start any trouble doing this (Ha – I know my jokes are terrible)!

Jam Simmering

That is, it!! Easy Peasy! You can skim any foam off the top and … Voila it is done!  Ready to go into Jars! Make sure you sterilize your canning jars first.  You could also put this in freezer jars, it freezes well. But it will get gone in my house quick.  It makes about 24 to 28 ounces. Keeps well in Fridge for up to 3 weeks!

Enjoy and you should share a jar with a friend 🙂

    So Yummy! Did a double batch, only had 2 jalapenos on hand, and the result is perfectly delicious! I am new to the flavours of sweet and Jalapeno together, but I can see this jam being in the annual autumn rotation now!

    1. Thank you for sharing, Ron! I am sure glad you enjoyed the recipe. I bet most any flavor would be good! I will have to try a few others.

  2. Turned out very good! We put a spoonful on top of a cracker spread with cream cheese! Nice flavour. I got 2 half pint jars.

    1. Judy, Thank you for stopping by! I have not ever cold packed this. I am attaching a link with a recipe that would be similar for you to take a look at. I am not an expert on canning so I hate to advise on storage time. I usually give away my extras and use it up within 3 weeks. My family loves the flavor of this. Tastes just like strawberry jam. I hope this helps. 🙂

    2. I would like to know I’d you can water bath this recipe or do you need to pressure cook this spicy green tomato jam if so how long in in either one thank you

      1. I haven’t tested canning this, but you should be able to can or freeze this recipe. Place jars in a pot and cover with 1 inch above the jars of water.Bring to a boil and boil for 20 minutes and then sit in hot water for another 5 minutes. Safe to store for 1 to 1 1/2 years.
