Smoked Homemade Tomato Jam

This smoky, caramelized jam lends itself extremely well to your morning toast. Given its equal notes of savory and sweet, you might also consider slathering it on a burger or using it to replace ketchup altogether. Heck, you could even put it to work as a pizza sauce or pasta sauce base. Basically, replace all the tomato products in your home with this. 
makes one half pint (small batch - feel free to scale the recipe)

- Ingredients - 
1 lb plum tomatoes
1 white onion; sliced in half, outer layer removed
3 large leaves fresh basil
1 ½ tablespoons no sugar needed pectin
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon salt

- Tools - 
Weston Smoker & wood chips
Weston Manual Kitchen Kit
Weston Canning Kit & Jars

Step One | Smoke Tomatoes & Onions

Preheat your Smoker to 400°F and soak wood chips for 30 minutes. Once Smoker is preheated, fill the smoker box with soaked wood chips and place the tomatoes and onion on a rack just above the smoking box. Remove the water bowl altogether. Smoke for 30-45 minutes, until onions are browned and tomatoes are fall-apart soft.

The finished product

Step Two | Combine

Place all ingredients into your Kitchen Kit with the chopper inserted.


Turn the handle to chop until well blended.


Step 3 | Set the Jam
Place the blend into a small pot and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Allow to boil for 1 minute, then remove from heat. 

Step 4 | Can (Optional)
If you're planning on jarring the jam for later, use a Canning Kit to safely sterilize and can. 

If canned, store in a cool, dark place until ready to use. Otherwise, it's ready to be eaten!
