How to make it:
Start by removing the skin of the tomatoes, for this you must make a cross at the base and then place them in boiling water for a few minutes. Once you have peeled the tomatoes, cut them into small pieces and remove the seeds if you wish.
Pour the chopped tomatoes, sugar and lemon juice in a deep pot, let stand for 3 hours before bringing to a fire so that all the liquids come off. After the time, cook over low heat for 45 minutes.
It is important that during cooking you constantly stir the jam to prevent it from sticking in the pot. If it has not yet thickened when the time is up, leave it on the fire for a few more minutes. When ready wait for it to cool before pouring into a pre-sterilized glass container.
