We have painted the kitchen..."we" is royal ...the potter did it!...anyway I had a sort out of recipes in books and scraps of paper and found this jam one that I had experimented with last year.
It goes really well with cheese and cold meats...but the potter had it on his pasta for evening meal and declared it good!
This makes about three jars of jam
2 red onions..finely sliced
1 tsbsp olive oil
1 tsp cumin seeds
6 garlic cloves..chopped
20grs fresh root ginger finely chopped
3 red chillies seeded and chopped
1 kg tomatoes roughly chopped
500 grs soft brown sugar
200ml white wine vinegar [or white wine]
50ml fish sauce
Fry onions in oil for 15 mins 'til caramelised and soft
Add cumin, ginger, chilli : cook for 1 min.
Stir in tomatoes, sugar, wine and fish sauce.
Simmer, stirring regularly for 45 mins 'til thick.
Spoon in sterilised jars, cool, seal and store in fridge for two months
Or spoon into freezer pots and keep for longer!
.....or not if it all gets eaten!
