Sweet and Spicy Tuscan Tomato Jam

Sweet and Spicy Tuscan Tomato Jam

I love recipes that look and sound fancy, even though they're SUPER easy to make.

Tomato jam is so delicious and can be used as a great condiment on hamburgers, hot dogs or anything else that would require ketchup.  It's also a GREAT topper for crostini, savory waffles and all kinds of appetizers!  I had mine for lunch today with some fresh, home made bread, a little Burrata cheese, some peppery baby arugula and sliced chicken sausage!

Get your creative juices flowing... have fun with this one!

  1. Combine all ingredients together in a medium saucepan.  Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and allow the sauce to reduce for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Add the corn starch and stir until the sauce is thickened, about 2 minutes.
