Tomato Chipotle Jam
My recipe for Tomato Chipotle Jam is a worthy opponent for your Inaugural Tomato Wellness Recipe Blogger Madness! The jam’s tomato flavor, along with the subtle hint of heat creates a truly unique and addictive experience.
It all started when I received a jar of Chipotle jam as a gift. For fun, I spread it on toast with peanut butter. When it was my turn to bring an appetizer for my monthly Bunco group with all women foodies, I decided to experiment and try a savory version of the Chipotle jam.
The results were Delish! I ended up with a fabulous recipe for Tomato Chipotle Jam. Using a cookie cutter to make the puff pastry into shapes adds a little bit of fun. Thin slices of toasted French bread or crackers will work, as well.
Talk about health! The jam is made from all healthy ingredients. The low fat, low sugar jam has plenty of vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants to promote longevity. And don’t forget the potassium in the tomatoes to lower blood pressure.
Enjoy! I guarantee the jam will be a big hit with tomato lovers.
