Yes, yes, I know tomatoes and jam is an oxymoron, but when I spotted a recipe for tomato jam that included chocolate, I was hooked. After all, I had tasted and enjoyed tomato sorbet which is another sweet treatment for my favorite garden edible, so I was willing to give jam a try.  To clinch the matter, the recipe called for 5 pounds of tomatoes which would put a dent in my accumulated stores on my kitchen counter.

The recipe that I found called for black brandywine tomatoes.  I did not grow that variety this year, so just used the various varieties that I had on hand.

I used an immersion blender to get most of the lumps out as it is so convenient and saves tremendously on cleanup. If you don’t have one, you could easily use a blender or food processor, but put an immersion blender on your Christmas list as it will make your cooking life sooo much easier.

I used my jam on freshly fried corn fritters and it was delicious!
