It all started with tomato jam.
My grandmother made it when I was young and it was my FAVORITE. I helped make it, which was fair considering I was inhaling it by the pint.
But when she died, so did my tomato jam. I checked every shelf of every store, but there was no tomato jam. So for years I did without, but I never forgot the taste of her tomato jam on hot buttered sourdough toast.
I grew up, got a degree (International Relations) and had a great career traveling the world with some big names like Hitachi, Cisco Systems and Clorox. Then one day I got grandma's recipe for tomato jam. But I had no time. So I still had no tomato jam.
Then I had a baby. And, darn it, he was going to know the joys of hot buttered sourdough toast with tomato jam.
And here we are.
Tomato jam...and more.
