Remember those green tomatoes?

Do you remember those green tomatoes I picked from my garden? I wrote about them here. I finally manager to turn them from this

 to this

 There were two jar, but I gave one to my mum and dad.

Anyway, here's the recipe for green tomato chutney.

Green Tomato Chutney

500g green tomatoes
100g onion
100g raisins
100g apple (sliced)
100g light brown sugar
1/4 litre balsamic vinegar
2 tbs salt

slice the tomatoes and onions into a bowl, sprinkle over the salt and leave overnight

Put the vinegar and sugar into a pan and bring to the boil, stirring to ensure the sugar melts.

Add the raisins and apple and simmer for 5 minutes

Drain the water off the tomatoes and onions and add to the pan.

Simmer for around 45 minutes until the mixture is thick and pulpy.

Spoon into jars.

This made about 2 jars, but as you can see I've sneakily made the quantities nice and easy for increasing/decreasing the amounts depending on how many tomatoes you have.

Reasons to be cheerful - 5th October 2017

It's a quickie this week... I'm still loving my job and really glad that I made the move. I submitted two commissioned articles to editors and they were happy. I'm off on a trip, a couple of nights away (more on that next week). Hope you've had a great week too.

Reasons to be cheerful - 7th December 2017

1) After a day of sawing, drilling, cutting, etc, etc, and then a new bit in the boiler...We have gas! Yes, our heating, hot water and cooker are now working - the gas is fixed! SO happy after 12 days without it.

2) This morning Boyzilla was greeted by a dead RAT outside the sitting room. Whilst yucky (but not as yucky as if I'd had to clean it up), it makes me hugely proud that my cats are, well, cats.

3) The two planning tools I ordered for 2018 to help me move forward with my plans to do more writing have arrived and I'm looking forward to spending big chunks of the next four days exploring them and planning for a fantabulous year.
