      This is a fabulous concoction. Try it on meatloaf, alongside a steak, with pork, or even on lunchmeat sandwiches!

      Ya got me good with this one. Made the first batch with Roma tomatoes given to me by a neighbor and a second batch with an assortment of heirloom tomatoes given to me by yet another neighbor. Both were equally delicious. Hope to make more to cover what I've already gobbled up. I used basil from a tube of Gourmet Garden Basil Herb Blend as my fresh had suffered during the recent rain storms. It worked just great. Thanks for sharing this great go-with-anything condiment.

      This jam is especially good and is easy to make! I think it makes an excellent accompaniment to poultry/fish/pork, any bread or omelette/quiche/frittata. I accidentally added 1/3c. of lemon juice instead of 1/4c. and it still turned out great. I used petite jelly jars (4oz) and got 9 full jars. For my needs, I knew I would only require condiment size servings per meal so I opted for the smaller jars which should serve 4-6. Very flavorful and a little goes a long way!
