Tomato Jam

I love the entire concept of sharing food! Whether it is just the two of us or with friends and family, I think it is such an enjoyable experience. So if I am too lazy to cook a cheese board always comes to mind. This time I served it with a homemade tomato jam which complimented the cheese so well that I just had to share the recipe! Hope you will enjoy it as much as I did.

Ingredients:

500g tomatoes

3 tablespoons packed brown sugar

1 tablespoon honey

Juice of ½ a lemon

½ teaspoon salt

Pinch of chili flakes

 

Fill a medium size pot with water and bring to a boil. Slice an “X” into the bottom of each tomato, and then carefully drop them in the boiling water for about 30 seconds. Drain the tomatoes and transfer them to a bowl to cool off. When cool enough to handle, peel and chop the tomatoes and add them with the remaining ingredients to the pot. Let the mixture cook for 30 minutes over medium heat until it has a jam-like texture. Stir the jam a few times while cooking to make sure it does not burn. Enjoy!
