Chef ElizabethCapture summer in a jar to have in your pantry all year round – that is if it lasts that long. This jam is delicious – family and friends adore it. It has become a staple new condiment on Chef Elizabeth’s table. We especially love it with eggs or in any way:

Ways to Use Spicy Tomato Jam:

  • Use on hamburgers, hot dogs or vegan burgers.

  • Add to soups to give a punch of heat.

  • Add to sandwich fillings like tuna or chicken.

  • Add to grilled sandwiches or paninis, or top fajitas, baguette or pita toasts.

I love this jam because it does not call for peeling or seeding the tomatoes – you can use any variety you choose – just alter the cooking time for watery tomatoes. I keep a canning journal to keep track of additions or alterations to the recipe and to record yield. The real secret to fabulous preserves is to taste as you go and to season to your taste.
