    Today I picked tomatoes and basil, made tomato basil jam. It was delicious.

    I am allergic to an acid in fresh red tomatoes.. When they are cooked the acid no longer effects me.. Do the tomatoes get cooked when making the jam? Because that sounds really really good ..

    Our friend has the same problem with fresh tomatos., but he tried my jam and did not feel the same sensitive feeling. So I think it's worth a try.:)

    Yes they do get cooked just like you would cook any other fruit for jam.
