 o

I'm sorting through some jewelery and watching some cooking show and they are making this. I automatically thought of all you tomatillo growers!!

Oh, it's Pati's Mexican table.

TOMATILLO AND LIME JAM
Mermelada de Tomate Verde con Limon
Makes about 1 1/4 cups

INGREDIENTS
1 lb tomatillos, husks removed, rinsed and roughly chopped
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup water
4 tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice
Rind of a lime, whole or chopped
A pinch of salt

TO PREPARE
Place all of the ingredients into a saucepan set over medium heat. Let them come to a simmer and stir occasionally, letting them cook until it has thickened and achieved a soft and loose jam consistency, about 35 to 40 minutes.

Don't wait until it has thickened too much, because it thickens considerably as it cools. Once it has cooled down, pour it into a container, cover tightly and refrigerate.

Dang it

Last summer I "came up' with a recipe for Golden Jubilee tomato and lemon marmalade using old timey cheaty method using lemon jello and lemon rind. Guess there is nothing new. Sigh.
