Here’s a fun seasonal project for those of you who have a surplus of cherry tomatoes. Or for people like me, who just can’t get enough cherry tomatoes while they’re here. Tomato jam! It’s sort of like peppery, jammy ketchup and I’m really into it.
Fair warning; tomato jam requires a lot of tomatoes (one and a half pounds yields a scant cup of jam). If you’re so willing, I can offer you a delicious tomato jam, basil and mozzarella-Parmesan panini, which can also be made as a grilled cheese sandwich. I used my electric grill to make panini because that sounded like more fun at the moment.
This is more of a flexible recipe than most, so use your best judgment when it comes to cooking the jam down and grilling those sandwiches!
