Tomato chilli jam is a sweet and spicy addictive condiment that matches and complements almost everything edible. It’s one of my absolute favourites and lives permanently at the front of the top shelf of my fridge for easy access anytime.

With its hot, syrupy and savoury flavour, and thick and sticky chutney-like texture, tomato chilli jam goes beautifully with so many delicious things, instantly lifting the flavour profile to something really special.

Slather it on some sourdough bread, topped with a cheese of your choice. Or dip sausage rolls into it, re-dipping after every bite. Spread it on your hamburger instead of ketchup or add a dollop to your BLT and it’ll make the world of difference.

Whichever way you choose to use tomato chilli jam – and we’re sure you will – once you’ve found a perfect partner for it, you won’t have it any other way again.

Notes

If you wish to have a milder jam, remove the seeds from the chillies or use a milder long red chilli.
