I have posted a recipe in the past for tomato jam but recently someone sent me a new recipe that had a different twist to it and the jam is delicious!!!! This recipe is a lot quicker than my original one which is another reason that I like it 😉 Enjoy!!!! For comments/questions email firstname.lastname@example.org
2 medium tomatoes ( I like Roma)
¼ cup sugar
juice of 2 limes
½ cup finely chopped red bell pepper
5 garlic cloves, minced
1 small Thai red chili pepper, minced, or ¼ teaspoon chili flakes (this gives it just a bit of a kick)
2 tablespoons fish sauce,
Peel tomatoes by slicing a small X in the base of each tomato. Place tomatoes in a pot of boiling water for 30 to 45 seconds or until skin loosens. Remove tomatoes with a slotted spoon and slip skins off when cool enough to handle. Chop tomatoes.
To make tomato-garlic jam, combine sugar and lime juice in a small saucepan. Warm over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Add tomatoes, red bell pepper, garlic and chili pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes or until mixture has reduced by about half. Stir in fish sauce (if using) and allow to cool to room temperature.
NOTE: The longer the jam has to sit the better the flavors blend. I also like to bring it out of frig so that it’s room temp when I put it on my burger. Weather you use turkey, beef or a combination of meat for your burger, this jam is great on all of them!!!
