This is not just a condiment for roasted meats or fish. It is a sandwich spread, a crudité dip, and a snack all unto itself, right out of the jar! Sweet and slightly spiked, this tomato jam is the perfect refrigerator staple to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary.

3 lbs tomatoes, coarsely chopped

1 small purple onions, chopped

¼ cup brown sugar

2 cups granulated sugar

1 tbs salt

2 tsp coriander

2 tsp cumin

¼ cup cider vinegar

Juice of 2 lemons

Bring all ingredients to a gentle boil in a large stock pot. Reduce to simmer once the mixture begins to bubble. Cook until thickened to a jam-like consistency, about 3 hours, and store in an airtight container or jar in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
