Weekend roundup redux: Slow Cooked tomato lemon marmalade + giveaway

Tomato MarmaladeIn last Monday’s Weekend Roundup I promised to share my Tomato Lemon Marmalade recipe later in the week. The week got away from me and I completely forgot so I’m making it up this Monday.

This was my first time making homemade jam/marmalade. Fortunately this recipe is so simple anyone can have fresh homemade marmalade in just a few hours. You want to know my secret? The crockpot of course. As you know I am an avid fan of the workhorse that is the crockpot. Cook’s of any skill level can use a crockpot since it does all the work so you don’t have to. Save for the slicing and dicing of the ingredients; all you dois set it and forget it. Really!

  1. i cannot wait to try this recipe our tomatoes are no longer in season but will pick up ingredients at friends place at the farmers market thank goodness he now has stands closer to where i live and a health food store 8 miles away

  2. I’ve made tomato jam before, absolutely amazing. Although my recipe was significantly different, it was made with whole cherry tomatoes. I may have to give this recipe a try. I’m not sure what the difference between jam and marmalade is, but I know jelly is made from juice rather than whole fruit.
