Prep Time: 3 hours

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients(Tomato Jam):

  • 3½ pounds roma tomatoes , large dice
  • 1 small onion brulee, chopped
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon coriander
  • ¼ teaspoon cumin
  • ¼ cup sherry vinegar
  • 1 each lemon

Ingredients(Grilled Cheese):

  • your favorite cheese

  1. Put all ingredients in a 2-quart pot. Bring to a gentle boil, and then reduce heat to a simmer. Cook until thickened into a jam-like consistency, about 3 hours. Keep an eye on the pot to make sure the jam does not burn.
