This sweet, tangy jam is an easy and delicious way to use up some of your garden tomatoes. A chunkier, more flavourful version of ketchup, it makes the ultimate dip, sandwich spread or accompaniment to grilled meat and fried eggs.

Score X in bottom of each tomato; plunge into large pot of boiling water until skin starts to loosen, about 12 seconds. Using slotted spoon, transfer to bowl of ice water; chill for 20 seconds. Peel off skins; score and chop to make 4-1/2 cups. Set aside.

In large shallow saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; cook onion, garlic and pickling spice, stirring often, until onion is tender, about 3 minutes. Add tomatoes, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened and reduced to about 2 cups, about 30 minutes. Let cool.

Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight containers for up to 3 weeks or freeze for up to 3 months.
