Tomato Jam

Posted on July 30th, 2012  |  5 Comments

Well we just arrived in Texas y’all, actually we arrived two days ago (when I wrote this), and I’ve been too busy having fun to post. Forgive me?

We’re getting that last-minute 3-day vacation in before full speed ahead into the new school year and more importantly – way more importantly – football starts soon and life’s about to get busy. I’m brewing up some fun shareable recipes perfect for game day, fall afternoons and recovery days (talk about important!)

Until then, I’m keeping it short with a few shots I’ve snapped and a classic dish in the making – inspired by Swedish friend from a Spanish cuisine. We’re global around here.

With the help of her memory, my pestling muscle, and both our tasting skills, I’d say this one’s a winner.

Once a mushy (jam-like) texture, stir in salt and oil.
