Tomato Jam

I always love the summer/fall season.  All kinds of fresh produce can be found in the stores and farmer’s markets.  Every year I scour the markets for sweet and juicy tomatoes.  I like to use them in salsas, salads, sandwiches and this tomato jam.  Sweet with a bit of a tang this jam is great served on bread or with cheese.

Enjoy!

Serve this dessert plated with a fork and tea.
