    My wife makes a ripe tomato chutney using a few ripe tomatos skinned or unskinned in a frying pan with some garlic and chopped onion, with or without basil and she makes it delicious. Usually served with sausage or basically any meat.

    I prefer to soak the tomatoes in boiling water to remove the skins. Your recipe is great I am going to make it am tomorrow 14TH valentines day and serve this with bangers for our breakfast.
