Magazine Monday #6: Tomato Jam

I come from a condiment-crazy family. My brother has more condiments in his fridge than anything else. In fact, you'd be hard-pressed to make a meal out of anything in his fridge, but you know you'll have a great selection of sauces and chutneys to accompany that meal. My dad has more than one cupboard in his tiny kitchen devoted to condiments.

I'm not condiment-crazy like the rest of my family, but I do like the basics: ketchup, mayo, a nice home-made relish. My ketchup ran out this week, and I thought this recipe for tomato jam would be a good replacement. From the August 2008 issue of Bon Appetit magazine, this tomato jam recipe was simple to make and was great on a bison burger. But...I do need ketchup for oven fries, so I did replace the bottle of ketchup after all.

The full recipe is here.

Not all of the family is condiment crazy!I don't even own a bottle of ketchup! I'm the boring family member.The jam recipe sounds good. I'll probably try it.

I'm a condiment fan as well and this sounds tasty! What struck me though was the bun in the picture. Are they quite thin? We get something like this from Superstore here in Edmonton and it's so much better than regular burger buns.

Karen: yes, this the same idea as the bun you described, which I believe is the PC "Burger First" bun. They are great, aren't they? I also love the "Hot Dog First" version. The bun in the picture is Thintini made by your average grocery store brand, but it's exactly the same as the PC version.

This sounds fantastic. One of my favorite cafes offers a tomato jam on their burgers and I think it is genius! I too am a condiment addict.
