Tomato jam

Makes approximately 1 cup

Ingredients

  • 2 tbs canola oil
  • 2 tbs grated ginger
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 firmly packed (100g) brown sugar
  • 1 small red chilli, finely chopped
  • 425g can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tbs honey

Method

Step 1 - Heat the canola oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the ginger and onion, and cook for 2-3 minutes until the onion is soft. Add the vinegar, brown sugar and chilli, and cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes until sugar dissolves.

Step 2 - Stir in the tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 30-35 minutes until thick (I leave the lid off so that some of the water will evaporate which can take up to 45 minutes but be warned, your stovetop will look like a crime scene with red splatters everywhere. Don't wear your best outfit). Stir in the honey and cool to room temperature.
