This particular jam is obtained from the transformation of green tomatoes harvested in our garden at the end of the season when temperatures drop and radiation reduces the ripening times of this colorful vegetable. The green tomato jam has a delicate consistency and a sweet taste although it retains a typical acidic aftertaste of the tomato.

The transformation process does not oxidize the product and allows to keep the pale green color of the product just picked. The jam is not passed therefore to the background coloring small yellow tips are added due to the presence of seeds.

Tomato is a plant native to Peru, cultivated in Mexico first by the Maya and then by the Atzeks. It was imported into Europe by the Spanish only in the first half of the 1500s. The "official" and documented history in Italy begins instead on 31 October of 1548 in Pisa when Cosimo de 'Medici receives from the Florentine estate of Torre del Gallo a basket of tomatoes born from seeds donated to his wife, Eleonora of Toledo, from the father, Viceroy of the Kingdom of Naples.
Known with various variations of the word "tomato”, was named for the first time as "pomo d’oro”From the great doctor, naturalist Pier Andrea Mattioli (1501-1578), for the typical shape and yellow coloring of some ancient varieties.
The domestication process of the plant has made it possible to propagate self-fertile individuals, in Europe, in fact, there are no natural pollinating insects of the beautiful yellow tomato flowers, which being free of nectars do not interest bees. So just a little wind or bumblebees shaking the flowers, to get a good harvest.
