For the sun-dried tomato jam

1 (225g) jar sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, drained and chopped, oil reserved
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 onion, thinly sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
25g granulated sugar
60ml red wine vinegar
240ml water
120ml chicken or vegetable stock
3g chopped fresh thyme leaves
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

For the crostini

1 baguette, cut into 2cm slices
4 tbsp olive oil
Salt
Freshly ground black pepper
140g goat's cheese, room temperature
5g chopped fresh thyme leaves
For the sun-dried tomato jam:

1) Place a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the chopped sun-dried tomatoes, one tablespoon of the reserved sun-dried tomato oil, olive oil, onion, and garlic. Stir and cook until the onions are soft and beginning to brown at the edges, about 5 to 7 mins. Add the sugar, vinegar, water, chicken broth, thyme, salt, and pepper. Bring the liquid to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer, covered, for 30 mins. Remove the cover and continue simmering until most of the liquid is reduced and the mixture is the consistency of jam, about 5 to 10 more mins. Remove from the heat and set aside.

For the crostini:
1) Preheat the oven to 200°C/ gas mark 6. Line a baking sheet with foil.

2) Place the baguette slices on the baking sheet. Using a pastry brush, lightly coat the baguette slices with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake until lightly toasted, about 8 mins.

For the assembly:
1) Place the soft goat cheese in a small bowl. Stir in the thyme.

2) Spread the crostini with sun-dried tomato jam and top with the goat cheese and herb mixture. Transfer to a serving plate and serve.
