  • 2 pounds cherry tomatoes about 3 cups halved, halved
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • Combine all ingredients together in a small saucepan. Simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until you can run a spoon through it and no liquid fills the space.
  • Chill and place into a glass jar. Refrigerate and use within 10 days.


To ensure that your tomato jam doesn't burn use a dutch oven and stir the jam often.
Because this is a refrigerator jam and not canned, it needs to be stored in the refrigerator and eaten within 10 days.
