recipe from Food in Jars
– 5 lbs tomatoes ($2/lb @ Santa Monica 3rd St FM)
– 3½ cups sugar
– 8 tbsp lime juice
– 2 tsp grated ginger
– 1 tsp cinnamon
– ½ tsp ground cloves
– 1 tbsp salt
– 1 tbsp red chili flakes
AWESOMENESS. Holy Frijoles, Batman, I can’t tell you how utterly amazing this jam is! Tomatoey, sweet, spicy—it’s wonderful with stinky cheese or maybe slathered on a meatloaf or in a bolognese sauce, on burgers instead of ketchup, the possibilities are endless. I plan on reserving an entire shelf for these gems.
SWEETNESS. I’m a little sweetened out lately so for the next batch, I might try cutting back the cinnamon/cloves/ginger a tiny bit. Just to see.
GINGER. Hey, look who learned how to peel fresh ginger.
So far I’ve only tried the jam on cheese and crackers (swoooon!).
