Bacon Tomato Jam
I hate condiments and I hate tomatoes (just raw ones). But I actually do love tomato jam—at least the sweet delicious stuff my grandma makes. So when I saw this recipe I was deeply lamenting the failure of my three little tomato seedlings earlier this spring. I was tempted to order a $15 jar of skillet bacon jam all the way from Oregon but I am still a bit skeptical of pureed bacon. Besides, wouldn’t it be better to pick up some tomatoes from the local greenmarket and make this sweet and savory version (no blender involved!) at home?
