This "butter" might be better described as "tomato jam." Either way, it's a delicious addition to breads, biscuits, and sandwiches.
Why This Recipe Works
To peel the tomatoes for our Tomato Butter, we used a vegetable peeler with a serrated blade. We also found we could boil the tomatoes briefly to loosen the skin, then peel them with our hands. If using that method, it was important to plop the tomatoes into an ice bath to stop the cooking.
To ensure the Tomato Butter was fully set, it was essential to refrigerate the spread for at least a few hours before serving.
