Savory Tomato Jam with Ginger and Lime

Tomatoes, ginger, and lime? This surprising combination creates a delicious savory jam!


  • Onion – 2 pieces
  • Sugar – 100 g
  • Cardamom – 6 pieces
  • Apple Cider Vinegar – 100 ml
  • Plum Tomatoes – 400 g
  • Lime – 0.5 piece
  • Lime Juice – 20 ml
  • Fresh Ginger – 1 piece


Step 1: Caramelize the Sugar Sprinkle sugar onto the bottom of a heated pan and caramelize it, without stirring, until it melts and turns a light golden color. To spread the caramel evenly across the pan’s surface, move the pan around – do not use wooden spatulas or touch the caramel.

Step 2: Cook the Jam Add finely diced onions. Sauté for a moment. Add grated ginger, lime zest, and cardamom. Mix well. Add finely chopped tomatoes. Stir. Pour in the vinegar. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the liquid evaporates and the jam slightly thickens.

Towards the end of cooking, season with salt and pepper. Add the lime juice.

Step 3: Transfer the Jam to a Jar Transfer the finished jam into a thoroughly washed, sterilized, and dried jar. Seal the jar tightly and turn it upside down on a cloth towel.
