  1. To make the tomato jam, put all the ingredients in a pan, season and simmer for 30 mins until you have a rich, thick glossy jam. Cool, then transfer to a sterilised jar (if you want to keep for over two weeks). Will keep, unopened, for six months.

  2. Halve the avocado and scoop into a bowl. Add half the lime juice and some salt and mash with a fork. Put the onion in a small bowl, pour over the rest of the lime juice and season with a pinch of salt. Mix well and set aside to lightly pickle.

  3. Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan. Cook the chorizo slices on one side of the pan and the halloumi on the other, turning once the halloumi is golden and the chorizo is sizzling. Cook for about 4-5 mins in total.

  4. Meanwhile, split and warm the baguette in the oven. Spread the avocado over one side of the baguette, and the tomato jam over the other. Fill with the halloumi, chorizo, coriander and pickled red onions. Cut up and tuck in.

This is delicious but the jam is shockingly sweet. I started out by halving the amount of sugar in the first place, and ended up adding a second tin of tomatoes and more vinegar to try and make it less sickly sweet. The flavours were great and loved the star anise, chilli and ginger but would recommend 60-70g sugar at most for a 400g tin of tomatoes.
