Deep South Tomato Jam

Move over strawberry jam, your Southern sister is in town! 


Strawberries are sweet, but tomatoes are sweet and savory! When tomatoes are made into a jam, it’s like a true taste of heaven - and the South!


Tomato Jam is classically southern! The charm of this jam has been enjoyed for many, many generations down south. 


What makes this jam unique is that it has a distinct savoriness. It’s really rich in flavor. It is both sweet and savory, while also being both smooth and chunky in texture. So, it really makes the perfect tangy topping, spread or dip.


Tomato jam is THE flavor of the season! Tomato jelly is exciting - it really is! It packs a punch that will bring your recipes to life, and the TBJ Gourmet Deep South Tomato Jam is incredible.

Holiday Fun Recipes With Deep South Tomato Jam


The holidays are coming soon, and it is the perfect time of year to try out new recipes and products. 


When your guests arrive this year, try shaking things up with some new bite sized appetizers with tomato jam.


Two simple tomato jam appetizers to WOW your holiday crowd:


  1. Mini Grilled Cheese bites with tomato jam: Go to your local bakery or wine shop, and get a fresh baguette. Cut the bread on a diagonal in small slices. Butter each side of the bread. Add your favorite cheese! (sharp cheddar works well, or try a nice swiss cheese). Add a delicious spoonful of the TBJ deep south tomato jam. Place on a baking sheet and grill until the mini sandwiches are golden brown.

  1. Christmas Crustinis with tomato jam: Get a freshly made sourdough baguette. Slice the sourdough into thin slices. Brush with olive oil. Place the slices onto a baking sheet and grill until golden brown. Once cool, evenly spread a thin layer of goat cheese on each slice. Top with a generous spoonful of TBJ deep south tomato jam.

Both of these recipes are super easy, and very satisfying. Be sure to purchase the freshest bread (or bake it yourself!), and give it a whirl.


Serve these apps with seasonal wines, and you’ll have an instant party! 

TBJ Gourmet Deep South Tomato Jam 

Give the deep south tomato jam a try! You wont run out of tomato preserve uses, that’s for sure. 


Certainly TBJ makes the best tomato jam. However, you can also feel good about your purchase from TBJ, too. TBJ donates 5% of sales of all of its tomato jams to Philabundance in order to upcycle surplus tomatoes into delicious tomato sauce for those in need.


Isn’t that amazing? 


Their jams also make fabulous gifts - stocking stuffers, anyone?
