Tomato Jam Chutney

Spicy Tomato Jam (Chutney)

Recipe Blog Post




2-3 tablespoons O&V Unflavored EVOO *

1 shallot, minced

3-4 cloves garlic, minced (or 1 ½ tablespoons garlic paste)

2 tablespoons grated ginger (or ginger paste)

½ teaspoon mustard seeds

½ teaspoon red pepper flakes (more to taste)

½ cup O&V Apple Cider vinegar *

2 cans (14.5 oz each) diced tomatoes, drained

½ cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon cumin powder




Place a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the EVOO and sauté the shallots, garlic and ginger till soft and translucent (3-4 minutes). Add the mustard seeds and red pepper flakes, sauté till mustard seeds start to splutter and become fragrant (2-3 minutes).


Stir in the vinegar, drained tomatoes, brown sugar, and cumin powder. Bring to a simmer and then reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook uncovered for 45-60 minutes stirring occasionally to prevent the jam from sticking to the bottom and burning. The jam should be thick and glossy – the consistency of a thick ketchup.


Let it cool, spoon into jars and refrigerate for use as a condiment with burgers, black bean burgers, lentil cakes, grilled cheese sandwiches, grilled chicken or fish.






Active Time: 15 minutes Total Time: 60-75 minutes





* This Unflavored oil is Bonsecco from Tuscany is a personal favorite. This artisan made Apple Cider vinegar is truly fabulous, and adds tremendously to the flavor of this chutney. You can use your favorite substitutes, but ensure that they are of high quality and flavor.
