Mom is improving daily and is getting back to her old self.
Green Tomato Marmalade....
yes you heard it here and I've already made my first batch.
Note the abundance of green tomatoes!
Here's what's needed:
1 cup water
4 pounds (about 9 cups) green tomatoes, cut in small pieces
5 cups sugar
1/4 cup crystallized ginger, minced (this one was really hard to find)
Using a veggie peeler, remove the top layer of rind from the oranges and lemon, being careful not to remove any of the pith.
Sliver the rind and set aside.
Remove the pulp and juices from the oranges and lemon and set aside.
In a small saucepan, boil the slivered rinds in a cup of water for about 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and rinse.
Core the green tomatoes. Cut them into small pieces.
Place the citrus rind and pulp, green tomatoes, sugar and ginger in a large pot. Bring to a boil and and boil uncovered for 2 hours or until the jam thickens.
Meanwhile, prepare the preserving jars.
Fill jars with hot marmalade, leaving 1/4 inch head space. Wipe the rims clean.
Seal according to manufacturer's directions and process the jars in boiling water bath for 10 to 15 minutes.
