Tomatoes are cooked into caramelized honey and a slew of herbs and spices in this jammy dip that doubles as a flavor-packed sandwich spread.
Yield: makes 2 1/2 cups
Time: 2 hours

Ingredients

  • 34 cup honey
  • 4 lb. mixed tomatoes, cored and cut into 1/2-inch dice
  • 14 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 12 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 12 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 14 tsp. ground cumin
  • 2 tsp. finely chopped oregano
  • 2 tsp. finely chopped rosemary

Instructions

  1. In a 6-quart saucepan, cook the honey over medium heat, stirring, until it darkens in color, 8 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, vinegar, salt, pepper, paprika, and cumin, and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened to a loose jam consistency, about 1 12 hours.
  2. Remove from the heat, scrape into a bowl, and let cool completely. Stir in the oregano and rosemary and chill for at least 4 hours, or overnight, before serving.
