Seasonal Spanish Food
by Jose Pizarro

Like everyone else in rural Spain, we always grow enough tomatoes to bottle as a sauce for the winter months. Aside from its obvious use in casseroles and soups, the sauce is fantastic spread on toast for breakfast. This recipe for tomato jam is also a great accompaniment to a variety of cheeses.
Makes approx. 1¼ cups


    · 2 lb ripe tomatoes
    · 1/2 cup superfine sugar
    · 1/2 cup demerara sugar (brown cane sugar)
    · 1 cinnamon stick
    · peel of 1/2 lemon
    · peel of 1/2 orange


Use a sharp knife to make a cross in the skin of the base of each tomato. Bring a saucepan of water to a boil. Add the tomatoes and simmer for 2-3 minutes.

Use a slotted spoon to remove the tomatoes from the pan and plunge them into iced water. Remove the skins and the stem. Chop the tomatoes into 6 to 8 slices, reserving the juice.

Place the tomatoes and juice in a saucepan over low heat and let reduce for 10 to 15 minutes, until most of the water has evaporated. Now add the rest of the ingredients and give everything a good stir. Don't break up the cinnamon.

Slowly cook the tomatoes for about 1 hour, stirring regularly. The end result should be a sticky, firm jam that is a shiny brown-red color. Remember to remove the cinnamon stick.

This keeps well in the fridge.
