My chutney came about because
a) my tomato plants aren't very well & I had a lot of red fruit to rescue
b) I want to make most of my xmas presents this year
c) I love making things
d) anything is better than revision on a Saturday morning.

Here I am all ready to go. I had about 900g of tomatoes here, a little short of the recipe but who's counting?

A LOT of peeling, chopping and weighing later:

Two hours on, one cut left thumb and a few burns from hot sterilised jars:

Totally worth the effort in the end - it tasted great and it still has a few months to mature. I'll get some ribbon and labels to decorate these nearer the time. A good morning's work and the perfect way to use up my tomatoes.

    It looks amazing in those small jars.

    We are waiting for our apple tree's fruit to ripen a bit more. Then hopefully we'll have chutney galore here too!
