Cherry Tomato & Star Anise Jam
2 C. cherry tomatoes; halved (amount after slicing)
1/2 C. dark plums; chopped (optional)
1/2 C. sugar + 1/2 C. date honey
1 T. lemon juice
2 star anise seeds
Over medium heat, combine all the ingredients. Bring it to a boil, constantly stirring for about 10 minutes. When film begins to form spoon it off and discard. After about 10 minutes, let it simmer for about 5 more minutes. You donâ€™t have to stir it but keep an eye to make sure nothing is sticking and burning. Turn off the heat, let it sit for about 10 minutes or so and then transfer to a jar. It stays good for about 2 wks.
