I make this when my tomatoes are ripe. It only makes 1 pint so it is very quick and easy. Great to serve with meat. Even if you don't can very often this is something that is easy and fast to do.
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 1 medium onion, peeled and thinly sliced
- 1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
- 1 1⁄2 lbs ripe tomatoes, cut into dice
- 1 bay leaf
- 1⁄4 cup prepared horseradish
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4-1⁄2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon dried thyme
- Melt buter in large skillet over medium-high heat.
- Add onions and cook, stirring until it begins to soften, 2-3 minutes.
- Add garlic and cook until golden, about 3 minutes.
- Add tomatoes, bay leaf and horseradish.
- Stir, reduce heat to medium-low and cook until tomatoes are tender, about 20 minutes.
- Add salt, cayenne and thyme.
- Ladle into hot canning jars.
- Seal and place in hot bath for 15-20 minutes.
I tell you what, this could also be marketed as a _sinus clearer_ because the fumes while it's cooking are potent! I have not breathed this freely in years. :-) DH, the heat and horseradish lover in the family, gave this 2 thumbs up! To please his palate, I went all in with the cayenne using the full 1/2 tsp. Since it made such a small amount and I knew it would quickly be eaten, I didn't bother with the canning process and will store it in the fridge for it's short life. Thanks for a great recipe!
