Tomatillo and Lime Jam

1 1/4 cup
Mermelada de Tomate Verde con Limon


  • 1 lb tomatillos, husks removed, rinsed and roughly chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4 tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice
  • Rind of a lime, whole or chopped
  • A pinch of salt

To Prepare

  • Place all of the ingredients into a saucepan set over medium heat. Let them come to a simmer and stir occasionally, letting them cook until it has thickened and achieved a soft and loose jam consistency, about 35 to 40 minutes.
  • Don’t wait until it has thickened too much, because it thickens considerably as it cools. Once it has cooled down, pour it into a container, cover tightly and refrigerate.
