Easy Tomato Jam with Ginger & Kumquats

Spicy Tomato Jam with Kumquats

I created this recipe to serve with toasted ciabatta for my friends’ wedding. It is so simple to make and so delicious, that I will be making this over and over again. I love the combination of tomato, ginger, & kumquat with the spicy kick of chilies at the end.

For a quick, simple, & elegant appetizer, cut store bought puff pastry into bite-sized squares with a bit of goat cheese and a dollop of the jam and cook according to package instructions.

This jam would make a great hostess gift for the holidays. I love that it covers gluten-free and vegan guests or gift recipients. One thing’s for sure, I’ll definitely be canning a big batch this summer when tomatoes are bountiful again.

  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
