Tomato Confiture

  • 14 oz   Tomatoes fresh, peeled and seeded or Whole Canned tomatoes
  • ½ cup Granulated Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Water
  • 1  Cinnamon Stick
  • ¼ tsp Ground Nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp Ground Allspice
  • ¼ tsp  Salt
  • 1 tbsp Hot Pepper Sauce (optional)

Blanche and peel the fresh tomatoes; squeeze out the seeds. Add all ingredients to a small sauce pot; bring to a simmer. Cook for 30 minutes on low, stirring occasionally. Remove cinnamon stick from the mixture. You may use the sauce as is, or puree for a smoother consistency.

This is a gourmet sauce or spread for stuffed strawberries(omit the hot sauce), white cheeses, or toast. Also delicious  drizzled on pork. Think of it like a fruit jam, not tomato sauce.

You will have your guests talking!
