Balsamic Tomato Savory Jam

Yield

About 1 1/2 cups (2 tablespoons per serving)

Is it a fruit or is it a vegetable? All we know is that we want to slather this savory tomato jam on everything. Packed with flavor thanks to fresh rosemary and tangy balsamic, with a thick texture due to the nature of Roma tomatoes, it's the perfect condiment for amping up a grilled cheese or burger. It also makes a great addition to pasta, with a few spoonfuls adding a little homemade flavor to store-bought sauce.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

How to Make It

  1. Place tomatoes in a medium size pot over medium-low heat. Sprinkle with salt and cook for about 5 minutes or until the tomatoes have begun to release liquid.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and turn the heat down to low. Continue cooking for about 20 minutes, or until a jam-like consistency is reached. Pour in a jar and seal tightly. Keeps in the fridge for about a week.
