Savoury Tomato Jam

Savoury Tomato Jam

3        cloves of garlic (crushed)

1        onion (finely minced)

2tbs   olive oil

1          large can of good quality diced tomatoes

1c        brown sugar

1          lemon (juice)

1tbsp   balsamic vinegar

1tsp     ground cumin

1⁄2tsp   cinnamon

1⁄4tsp   ground cloves

1tsp     salt and pepper

1          dried red chili (crushed)

Sautee the garlic and onion with olive oil in a medium sized saucepan until it becomes fragrant. Now add the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring often. Once boiling reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally until you get the consistency of thick jam. This takes about 1 hour. Adjust seasoning if necessary, you may need more lemon juice or salt. Cool the jam and refrigerate it until ready to use; it will keep at least a week.
