Spicy Tomato Jam

Spicy Tomato Jam ( Approx. 1 1/2 cups)
Remember this is a condiment so have some fun with your favorite foods. This is a FRESH perishable product. Enjoy!

Cut in small pieces, 6 to 8 medium size Tomatoes.
Sprinkle equal parts of Salt and Sugar on the tomatoes.
( I invite you to play with other sweeteners besides processed white sugar. I used Coconut Sugar)

Let sit for a few hours, so they can let down their juices.

(Sometimes I do overnight, covered sitting on the counter)

Strain the sugar/salt water into a pan or pot, bring to a simmer, and reduce down until it has thickened to jam consistency. Stir once in awhile.

Add back in to pan the fresh tomatoes, fresh grated Ginger, and a couple of finely chopped Chile Peppers (or cayenne pepper), for heat.

Let simmer until “jam” has reduced to desired consistency.

Taste for salty, sweet & heat. Finish with a fresh grating of ginger root.

Shopping list:
Fresh tomatoes, Salt, Sugar, Ginger root, Chile peppers or cayenne pepper, Lemon (always keep one on hand just in case it's hot, squeeze a little juice in to help balance the intensity)
