“Tomatoes. Somebody’s gotta take ‘em. I hate ‘em! I try not
to eat healthy food if I can possibly help it.” -Ouiser, Steel Magnolias
Tomato what? Right. So let’s get this out of the way right off the bat. I know that tomato jam may sound a bit, well… off. Stick with me, though! (see what I did there??) Tomatoes are certainly a staple in many meals here in the South. Fried green tomatoes, tomato soup and grilled cheese, tomatoes and okra, BLTs. You get my drift. Anything that you make around here can be bumped up to be just a bit better with the addition of some sort of tomato. That being said, there are few sweet tomato dishes that come to mind.
