After work today I spent a lot of time slicing. Having sliced onions and tomoatoes yesterday, (these had to rest overnight), it was a case of slicing apple and saltanas. In many respects I was glad I was only doing half the amount as 250g of saltanas is a lot of them to cut up! There was probably a quicker way, but I couldn’t think of it off the top of my head. What did amaze me was how much all the produce reduced down. At one point I was sure I would end up with 3 jars of tomato chutney, but in the end it’s only a jar and a half, all be it 1 litre jars. Once everything has cooled down later tonight they will be stored and allowed to stand for a few weeks and then I’ll give it a try and then I’ll know if I’ll do this more often or if it will be my first and last time.
