Tired of tomatoes yet?  Finding new ways to enjoy them as we harvest the last ones of this season can be a challenge. But here is a great way to pair them with the last summer peaches too… in this sweet ‘n hot jam!  

You can enjoy this over cream cheese or pork chops and chicken. We like it spooned over spicy fried fish, like on these fresh North Carolina flounder sandwiches.  Slice and add other garden goodies like crunchy cucumbers and raw peppers for some crunch… along with fresh cilantro and even bacon!  It stores well in your fridge for a few weeks, your freezer for a few months …but you can also can and process to put on your pantry shelves!

I hope you will give this a try and hop over to my facebook community and share your pictures and how you used this jam!

Crispy Fish Sandwich With Roasted Tomato, Peach and Nectarine Jam

Roasting tomatoes with peaches and nectarines cooks out their moisture, leaving pure, concentrated fruit goodness. The diced peppers add a nice bite, along with a little heat. Spoon this jam over fish, chops or chicken! Or serve over cream cheese as an appetizer.

  1. I look after a vape store submission site and we have had a listing from a vape store in the USA that additionally offers for sale CBD product lines. A Calendar month afterwards, PayPal has written to use to claim that our account has been restricted and have requested us to take out PayPal as a payment method from our vape store submission site. We do not offer CBD product lines like CBD oil. We only offer promotion and marketing services to CBD companies. I have checked out Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Reputable Health Retail store and if you take a close look, you will witness that they offer a relatively wide-ranging stable of CBD items, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a settlement method. It emerges that PayPal is administering double standards to many different firms. As a result of this stipulation, I can no longer take PayPal on my CBD-related online site. This has limited my payment possibilities and right now, I am greatly reliant on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have consulted a solicitor from a Magic Circle law practice in The city of london and they said that what PayPal is undertaking is totally not legal and inequitable as it ought to be applying a consistent benchmark to all firms. I am still to check with one more lawyer from a US law office in The city of london to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the USA. Meanwhile, I would be very appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could offer me with different payment processors/merchants that work with CBD firms.
