Spiced Tomato Jam

  • ACTIVE: 30 MIN
  • SERVINGS: Makes about 2 1/2 cups

When his restaurant's gardens produce a bumper crop of heirloom tomatoes, chef Sheamus Feeley makes this tangy marmalade by the gallon, using it as a glaze for meat loaf, a condiment for pork chops or a garnish for goat cheese spread on toast. "As a Southern boy, I love anything sweet and sour, like barbecue sauce," he says.

  1. 2 1/2 pounds ripe tomatoes, peeled and coarsely chopped
  2. 1/2 navel orange, thinly sliced and seeded
  3. 1/2 lemon, thinly sliced and seeded
  4. 1 cup sugar
  5. 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  6. 1 tablespoon ras el hanout (see Note)
  7. 1/2 tablespoon finely grated fresh ginger
  8. Salt
  1. In a large saucepan, combine the tomatoes and the orange and lemon slices with the sugar, cider vinegar, ras el hanout and ginger and bring to a boil. Simmer over moderate heat, stirring often, until thick and jam-like, about 45 minutes. Let cool and season with salt.
Make Ahead The jam can be refrigerated for up to 2 weeks. Serve at room temperature. Notes Ras el hanout, a Moroccan spice blend, is available at specialty-food shops, Middle Eastern grocery stores and online at It can also be substituted with 1/3 teaspoon each of ground cinnamon, coriander and turmeric mixed with a pinch of cayenne pepper.
