Keep the flavor of summer alive with homemade sweet and savory tomato jam. This condiment will become a favorite at every meal.
- Bring a large pot of water to boil, and blanch the tomatoes a few at a time, until the peels loosen (about 1 minute). Transfer immediately to an ice bath to cool, and peel carefully. Remove the cores and dice.
- Place the diced tomatoes in a large saucepan with the rest of the ingredients, and stir to combine. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium-high heat, then reduce the temperature to medium, keeping a slow simmer going.
- Cook for 1-2 hours, stirring occasionally and adjusting the heat as needed, until the mixture is thick and syrupy. Remove from the heat and transfer to another container to cool.
- Serve at room temperature, or store in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to three days.
