Tomato Jam

This flavourful Tomato Jam made with ripe tomatoes is delicious to serve as a side and enjoy with rice and flatbread. It is a perfect way to save up the garden harvest. 

about 20 tomatoes when pureed it will be about 2 1/2 to 3 cups
1/4 cup sugar brown or white, add more to taste
1/2 tsp cardamom crushed into powder
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/8 tsp salt
1 to 2 tbsp raisins optional to add towards the end

Leave the tomatoes in boiling water, peel the skin and puree. Mix the tomatoes with sugar and cardamom and cook on medium low heat until it is thick, and is not watery. Since it will splash keep the lid slightly covered.
Add raisins when the jam thickens. Let it cool completely before putting into glass bottles and storing in the fridge.
