Tomato Balsamic Jam

June 18, 2011

Author Notes: I made this as part of an entry into the aioli contest and decided to enter this as a recipe unto itself. I have been making it for years using with eggs primarily but its also a wonderful addition to sandwiches, or main dishes. Super simple to make and very versatile. Store in the refrigerator.sdebrango

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Fresh red cherry tomatoes cut in half
  • 1 Shallot diced

Add shallots and saute until translucent, add tomato,salt and pepper to taste and cook until tomato starts to caramelize but there should still be some of the juices from the tomato you don't want it too dry. Add the balsamic vinegar and continue to cook stirring frequently for another 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

I like Megan's comment--this would be good as an alternative to ketchup!

Just came home with a precious bag of early season tomatoes from my favorite market. They have this written all over them. Beautiful, and thank you.
