I’ll be sharing recipes I have created with their products.We are kicking off the collaboration with my delicious Chili Tomato Jam recipe.

Product used: Kitchen Craft Thermometer.

Homemade jam is just delicious and this recipe is quick and easy and goes so well with my cheddar cheese scones which I am sharing next.


  • 750 g good ripe tomatoes (Roma are best), cored and coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp. freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 tsp. fresh grated or minced ginger
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • ¼ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 jalapeño or other peppers, stemmed, seeded and minced, or red pepper flakes or cayenne to taste



  1. Combine all ingredients in a heavy medium saucepan, Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring often.
  2. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until mixture has the consistency of thick jam, about 45 min.
  3. You will know your jam is ready when the jam reaches 110 degrees; the Kitchen Craft Jam thermometer has JAM noted on the reading, so you can’t miss it.
  4. Make sure you bring the thermometer up to heat with what you are cooking.
  5. Taste and adjust seasoning, then cool and refrigerate until ready to use; this will keep at least a week.
