TASTES LIKE MY CHILDHOOD

This recipe makes almost 1 jar 16 oz -1 pint 
I may or may not have sampled some warm jam with crackers before jarring it and taking this picture.
My aunt made this when I was a child, and with the popularity of Pinterest I now know it’s not such the oddity those around me made it to be all my adult life LOL
I don’t, nor ever had her recipe, I did find one a few years ago to try and it was good, but I lost it, so like most recipes I muddle up, with the help of Pinterest I came up with this one, and its just as good!

While most traditional Fall treats and recipes may be pumpkin spice everything, and caramel covered apples, both of which I love too, tomatoes are ripe at the beginning of fall and available for cheap.

We grew some tomatoe plants this year, and while they became more of tomatoe trees, the actual amount of ripe tomatoes that we managed to harvest from them was not very much.

Weird summer here in my neck of Canada, way too much spring rain, way to hot July and then a cold August, at this rate I predict a snowstorm by Halloween.

This recipe only needs 3 large tomatoes, I used beefsteak, equivalent to 2 overflowing cups, so it can be made now while baskets of tomatoes are available at grocery stores and farmers markets, or in the middle of December to serve with cream cheese and crackers at Christmas.

This is great on warm toast, bagels, crusty bread, alone with crackers, or in combination with plain or herb and garlic cream cheese.
