before and after 1


Yick right?

Post-frost tomatoes scrounged from neighbour A's garden. 20 kilos of them. Why on earth would I want those?

For this of course:


(Sigh, I need to learn how to use photoshop to crop out the crap in the background of my pictures!)
Inside the jar though? Magic. Tomato chutney. It's tomatoes and onions and sultanas and vinegar and sugar and it's fabulous!! In Australia I wouldn't eat a cheese sandwich without it. Or a ham one. Definitely not a ham and cheese one. Here? I love it on rice. I love it on rice with scrambled eggs and bacon and mushrooms. I love it on toast. And ok, I'll be honest, I love it on a teaspoon straight out of the jar. Yummmmmmm!

Definitely not yick anymore.
