Cutty's bacon, lettuce and tomato jam sandwich recipe (Francis Lam/08/10, Salon)

Cutty's Tomato Jam

Ingredients

* 1½ pounds Roma tomatoes, cored and chopped coarsely
* 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
* 2 tablespoons brandy (optional)
* 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
* 1 scant cup granulated sugar
* ½ teaspoon ground cumin
* ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
* ¼ teaspoon red chile flakes
* 1 teaspoon salt

Directions

1. Combine all ingredients in a medium-sized heavy-bottom pot, preferably nonstick. ("This is the best use for a nonstick pan I've ever come across," Chuck says. "Well, this and Rice Krispies treats. Otherwise, I don't know why they exist.") Cook over medium-high heat until bubbling.
2. Reduce heat to low and gently simmer, stirring occasionally, until mixture is thick and syrupy, about 1 hour. Cool the jam; season with salt and pepper if necessary. Store in the fridge.
