Green Tomato Jam

Jennifer McConnell


My grandfather used to love homemade raspberry jam. My grandmother, being a thrifty woman, used to make this for him and taught me and my cousins how to make it when we were very young. If my grandfather ever knew what was in it, he probably never would've touched it again, however he never caught on, and raved about it. Great way to use up the end of the year green tomatoes!

  • 4 c
    green tomatoes, crushed fine
  • 3 1/2 c
    sugar (splenda works to make this sugar free)
  • 6 oz
    raspberry or strawberry jello mix (again, can use sugar free jello mix and it works fine)

How to Make Green Tomato Jam


  1. In a med-large pot, mix tomatoes and sugar/splenda together. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to a low simmer for 20 minutes, stirring every so often.
  2. Remove from heat and add jello mix, stirring until it's completely disolved. Pour into hot canning jars and seal. This jam can be frozen, once cooled, or put in fridge to start using right away.
