Green Tomato Jam
I've come to the sad realization that my curiosities have missed canning season and my hopes of stocking up on jars upon jars of colorful jam to have through fall and winter have been smushed.
But, the good news is that I've finally got the kahunas to open up that jar of green tomato jam that I've been saving for who-knows-what. I just really love the story behind this particular jam and all the confettura that come from this monastery just outside of Rome. Made by Trappist nuns, their jams are sweet and capture the essence of the starring fruit--in this case, green tomatoes.
I've been using this sweet, sweet jam on everything from buttered toast, to dolloped on top of cheese, to grilled poultry--it's fantastic on all the previously stated and I'm in the process of discovering more tasty vehicles for this crazy colored jam.
If you ever come across this gem, I suggest you snatch up a jar. In fact, I have just the place for you to get your hands on this GREEN TOMATO JAM. With Thanksgiving coming up, I'm thinking of using this a replacement for cranberry sauce. Doesn't sound to shabby, huh?
