“We’re jamming” – every time Bob Marley says that, I hear “pyjamas”. Luckily a quick google search showed me that I am not the only one. But hey, this was not what I was planning to say.. Ok, I made jam!! And it’s from my most beloved fruit, tomatoes! Yes, I call tomato a fruit because I’d like to support the scientific thinking. A tomato is technically a fruit, but the use of it in mostly savoury dishes makes it a vegetable in practice. This jam, though, is not the regular jam as you know it – this one has a very, and I mean very, spicy sauce in it called “harissa”, coming from Maghreb cuisine.
I am not really a jam person. I think I was, at some point when I was a child. I liked eating my mother’s delicious strawberry jam. But that was it. I guess the way I like eating jam the most in the recent years is with sausage. Yes, you read it correct, I like dipping sausage into jam, so sue me!
