Feed The Resistance: Lotsa Meat and Tomato Jam is paired with Ale Asylum’s “Madtown Nutbrown”


I have a really good friend who loves to smoke meat!  He’ll spend an entire weekend tending to the smoker…and share the results with all of his friends (THAT’S a good friend to have!).  One night, while having dinner at his house, I got in my head the idea that the smoked meat would be even better with a tomato jam.  I didn’t even know if there was such a thing – but it sounded like there should be, and it felt like it should accompany this great smoked meat.  Fast-forward a couple of months and I found a recipe for Tomato Jam in Food & Wine Magazine, so I gave it a try.  My instinct was correct – even though the recipe was intended to be served with biscuits, it went great with the meat!

This week, for Feed The Resistance, we welcome a new sponsor – UW Provision…with 2 locations; The Meat Market in Middleton and Local Source Foods in Sun Prairie.  The sausages and jerky that you see here came from Local Source Foods, and the Beer came from The Meat Market (both locations have beer & wine, and of course…meat!).
