Grape Cherry Tomatoes with Strawberry Jam

Burger toppings ~ What we get in burger kiosks here typically includes slices of cheese, tomatoes and some greens. The meat patty is slathered with tomato ketchup and mayo. Ask for a 'special' and the patty comes wrapped in egg!

I just wanted something different for my homemade burger. This was the result : Grape Cherry Tomatoes with Strawberry Jam.

It's so easy to do and goes great with plain breads too. I've tried! Taste-wise, this is tangy sweet with a light burst of fresh tomato.

This is just a rough guide. I'm not including any measurements because it really doesn't matter much. The ingredients are cooked together to infuse the flavours.

- Grape cherry tomatoes (halved)
- Strawberry jam
- 1 tbsp water or more to help dissolve the jam

Jamming with Tomatoes

1) Heat pan, no oil required. Add tomatoes, strawberry jam and water.

2) Stir until jam is dissolved into a thick sauce and the tomatoes are slightly cooked. Add more water, if necessary, to keep it from drying out.

To eat, just top burger buns with lettuce, olive oil fried meat patties and this. It tasted so well together that I found no reason to add other condiments.

I'm already imagining the possibilities with other fruit jams...mmm..fresh mango with orange jam, anyone?
