  1. + Directions : In a wide preserving pan boil the sugar and water to a syrup. Add the tomatoes, skinned and sliced. Boil steadily, stirring fairly often, for about 35 minutes. Put in the vanilla bean (vanilla essence will not do). Cook for approximately 10-15 minutes longer, or until setting point is reached. Remove the vanilla pod, skim the jam, and let it cool for a few minutes before turning it into small jars. The cookbook says this is "particularly good when eaten in the French way, as a sweet, with fresh cream cheese or plain pouring cream. "
