Whole Baby Tomato And Onion Chutney

This recipe for whole baby tomato and onion chutney has been adapted from the avocado magazine. At one stage I was collecting all of these magazines but had to stop when I ran out of space. It was a good reason for me to start making the recipes.

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 prostate 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. 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

  1. 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.

  2. 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!

    1. I cannot wait to test this with some cheesy bread! I have made a habit of labeling my jars otherwise I play guess work in my fridge 🙂

  3. This sounds wonderful. I love chutney of any type and will have to give this one a try. I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary

  5. I’m catching up with your yoghurt cake and the rest.
    This is a fab recipe. I love raw tomatoes though..

    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
