A savory take on Jam

At first I dismissed the idea of “J is for Jam” altogether because I thought there would be no “dinner” recipes made with jam…

Only desserts came to mind.

Then I realized that jams would make a FANTASTIC glaze for meats… especially chicken or pork. But more on that in another post.

A “jam” that I definitely did not expect but ended up LOVING is the subject of today’s post: TOMATO Jam!

Throw out any pre-conceived notions that just entered your head… you NEED to try this!

Tomatoes are a fruit after all… why not make jam out of them?

This is amazing on a burger!!! Take a look…

Slow Cooker Honey-Barbecue Pulled Pork

Slow cooker recipes are wonderful…

Nobody can say they don’t enjoy getting everything into one pot, not having to worry about it for 8 hours, and having a mouth-watering final product that will last for several meals as a result. This is just such a recipe…
