I love the intense flavor of jams. No matter if they are sweet or savory, the flavors are intensified due to the reduction. This Tomato Basil Jam is no exception. It is thick and full of tomato flavor and only 4 ingredients! The secret is the oven roasting. Slather it on cooked meat, vegetables, or crackers to bump up the flavor of anything!
Tomato Basil Jam
3 Large Organic Tomatoes
1/3 Cup Garlic Infused Olive Oil
1 Teaspoon Himalayan Pink Salt or Sea Salt
2 Tablespoons Chopped Fresh Basil
Preheat your oven to 375º degrees. Slice the tomatoes about a half inch thick. Toss with 1 Tablespoon of Garlic Olive Oil and sprinkle with salt. Place them in a single layer on two parchment lined baking sheets. Roast in the oven for 50 minutes until the tomatoes are starting to brown and caramelize.
Remove the pans from the oven and cool ten minutes. Place the tomatoes and the remaining 1/4 cup of garlic olive oil into a food processor. Add the fresh basil. Pulse until you get a smooth consistency.
This flavorful savory jam is full of healthy fat, lycopene from the tomatoes and delicious fresh basil. What’s not to love about this healthy spread!
