Recipe For Tomato And Onion Chutney

Tomatoes to me are one of the most interesting fruits. As the saying goes, knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit, wisdom is not putting it into a fruit salad. It is the one food item that gets better for you the longer you cook it. As Dave does not do the ‘go to the Doctor thing’ at all, I have vowed to make sure he eats well enough not to get any of the nasty’s. Lycopene in tomatoes is good for prostrate health, and the more you cook a tomato, the more the lycopene it contains. My body craves tomatoes in any form when I am about to get a sore throat and so I like to have on hand some tomato juice, some fresh tomatoes and lots of tinned tomatoes. When I saw this recipe I knew I could have another tomato fix waiting for me, the next time my body demands it.

    1. Raw tomatoes are good, but this is a nice thing to do for when they are not in season 🙂 Weekend away is awesome xxx

  5. I can just imagine this with big hunks of fresh ciabatta and a variety of artisan cheeses. Yum! Looks amazing, Tandy, and I love the handwritten lid label – homemade love!

  6. Never to old to learn! Good to know about the Lycopene – thanks.
    Love the idea of this recipe. Finding baby tomatoes here is like finding a needle in a haystack, so think this will be another one of those recipes to try when we get home.

    1. the recipe did not mention that which I think is a failure. But it is cooked in vinegar so at least 6 months! I am waiting out the 2 weeks to try it 🙂 Friday greets back xxx
