I know tomato season is over but I found these incredibly sweet yellow cherry tomatos. They were sitting around a tad too long so I decided to turn them into jam. Good stuff to go with meat loaf, chicken or a curry. This is really an easy way to dress up your dinner plate.
1 pint sweet cherry tomatoes
1 cup diced Vidalia or sweet onion
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
a pinch of salt
Blanch and slip off the tomato skins. it's a little extra work but worth the effort. Put in a nonreactive sauce pan and add the chopped onion, brown sugar, vinegar and thyme. Cook over medium heat and bring the mixture just to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer. Cook, stirring frequently for 45 minutes until thickened. Add the chopped basil and stir until whilted.
