Eating My Way Through the Alphabet; Letter T

What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Food for Sharing: Tasty Tomato Jam! Crank up your taste buds a bit with this savory sweet jam that is bursting with flavor. Spread it on toast or grilled cheese. Think of it as a condiment for meatloaf, fish, hamburgers, or grilled shrimp. Serve it on a charcuterie board with cured meats and gourmet cheeses. One of my favorite combos is Pear Camembert Flatbread.* It’s all the rage! Decide for yourself what the fuss is about. I did. And now tomato jam is a “must have” at my house.

1 small red onion, finely diced

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 

1 teaspoon Mexican tarragon, minced

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)

In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave red onion on High setting for two minutes. Using a reduction pan over medium heat, combine diced onions and Roma tomatoes. Add olive oil, garlic powder, candied ginger, garlic red wine vinegar, natural honey, brown sugar, ginger, cloves, cinnamon, Mexican tarragon, red pepper flakes, and sea salt.
