Wow! This was impressive. The first batch I made I grated the tomato and it was a bit too stringy. The next batch I blended the tomato for a few seconds and it was much better texture. Also be careful not to boil too long. I didn't have enough moisture so the jam was too thick. Read More

Sorry but I found this to be a poor substitute for raspberry jam. It had kind of a raspberry flavor but just not like the real thing. Read More

This recipe was good but a little too sweet. Next time I make it I will cut back the amount of sugar used Read More

This is a great recipe. You can use Strawberry gelatin instead of Raspberry gelatin for a different taste, if you have a lot of green tomatoes left in the garden in the fall. Read More

Amazing! I have some raspberry jam I made from fresh picked crop to compare this to and, except for the seeds, you wouldn't know the difference. Worth picking tomatos green on purpose, and not just using the last of the crop! Great for recipes, too. Makes good raspberry dressings. Read More

This was my first attempt at mock raspberry jam. I followed the recipe exactly using my Cuisinart to chop up the tomatoes. I filled six pint-sized jars. My family likes it pretty well and it is a reasonable substitute for real fruit jam. And, a fun way to use up all my green tomatoes. Read More

Wow this really looks like raspberry jam. My daughter loves it on toast. I am a conisseur of jams and it is not bad as far as jams go. Of course I prefer the real thing but it is a good way of using up the green tomatoes. Read More
