OT - Tomato Jam

My better half brought home a recipe for this, making it as I type. I've had it before and it rocks. If it turns out and anyone is interested I will share the recipe.

    Interesting, never heard of tomato jam. What do you usually put that on? Pics and recipe.

    Spiced Tomato Jam 5 lbs tomatoes, cored and chopped 3 1/2 c granulated sugar 1/2 c freshly squeezed lime juice 1 Tbsp freshly grated ginger (peel the ginger before grating) 1 tsp ground cinnamon 1/2 tsp ground cloves 1 Tbsp sea salt 1 Tbsp red pepper flakes Combine all the ingredients in a large nonreactive pot. (I used my favorite 4 qt pot, which was perfect for the task.) Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to low. Simmer the jam, stirring regularly, until the tomato appears fully cooked and begins to break down. Blitz the whole pot with an immersion blender – get it as smooth as possible. Prepare jars and a boiling water bath. I like to put this up in 4 oz jars – you’ll need about 13 in that size, or 6 8-oz jars plus some extra in a custard cup to stash in the fridge. When the jam has cooked down and will pass a wrinkle test, remove pot from the heat and ladle the jam into your sterilized jars. Wipe rims, apply lids and rings, and process in a boiling water bath for 20 minutes. This jam is amazing. It’s better than ketchup. This is not a simple sweet condiment; it’s deeply spicy and tomatoey, and has a little kick at the end. Fabulous on meatloaf, or anywhere you might use ketchup, it’s also a natural match with soft runny cheeses.

    It goes very well on steaks and pork.
