Tomato Preserves Question

I've been looking at recipes for tomato preserves and tomato jam, and they look delicious. Most recipes call for spices like cinnamon, cloves, allspice and the like, and lots of sugar, as you'd use in any preserves or jam.

My question is, what would you use this with? Would you spread it on bread, or use as a condiment with meat?

Both! And more.

They go great on sandwiches and burgers with many kinds of meat and fish. You could also combine them with omelets and other dishes.

Tomato jam is an everyday product in South Africa, and people serve it on bread (with some sharp cheese on top) or on top of warm scones (which, over there are more like US biscuits than US scones) or crumpets (like US silver dollar pancakes) and things like that. It's pretty delish! I haven't noticed a cinnamon, clove or allspice taste to the commercial jams, just the tomatoes and sugar. Then there's tomato chutney, which probably would have some of those spices and would be used with savoury foods. Good luck with your preserving!

Moved to Preserves, I think it will get more play here.
