Tomato jam is great for utilizing late summer heirloom tomatoes. We love eating fresh slices of the ripe fruit as much as the next person, but this jam mixes it up in the best way possible.
We recommend slathering it on grilled bread, tossing it with pasta, or layering it on a sandwich. Heck, you could even put it on your scrambled eggs or your baked chicken breasts. The possibilities with this condiment are — as they say — endless.
