Joyful Tomato Days
DO YOU CAN?... "Jumpins" (as my uncle Richard is fond of saying))))...Yes I do!!!
Sure I started out with the pickles and jams about thirty-five years ago...but recently (the last six years or so) I got "all exotic"..and if you have followed my blog I specifically grew tomatoes this year hoping to make again, my favorite Tomato chutney.. from Madhur Jaffery's book "Taste of India" and a new recipe of Sarah Raven's called Chilli Jam.
It's been a great day..lots of boiling and steam... tomatoes from our garden (gold, purple and red) simmering...the house smells of garlic, cumin, ginger, fennel....and more.
Yes my legs are saying sit down, but my mouth is saying...sigh, bliss..ummm..as I reach for the cheddar cheese, crackers and that lovely soft warm chutney..ahem..jam. Makes no diff..it's divine.
