Chilli Jam

This jam is delicious, and it uses some more of the tomato glut.


2 1/2 kg tomatoes - chopped (you can skin them if you want - I don't)
70g garlic - skinned
70g fresh root ginger - skinned and sliced
3 - 4g small dried chillies - about 20
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
937ml vinegar - I use Cider
2 1/4 kg white sugar

Put tomatoes, garlic and ginger and chillies into a large pot and simmer for about 20 minutes.
Add salt, spices and vinegar and bring back to the boil.
Next add the sugar. Simmer for about an hour, stirring regularly.
Blitz the sauce in a food processor.
Return to the clean pot and simmer until a jam consistency.
