What do to with the rag-tag left over tomatoes from the garden? Fresh Tomato Chutney is a savory-sweet-hot spread for sandwiches, the cheese platter, as a dip—a versatile spread is always a little jewel.
END OF SEASON TOMATOES
I make chutney to use up any leftover tomatoes in the garden that are end of the season. This chutney is simple to make and is particularly good served with a hard cheese.
End of season tomatoes are a perfect fit for Fresh Tomato Chutney. Never made a chutney? No worries, fresh tomatoes, onions and spices are simmered together to create a one-of-a-kind spread.
Chutneys can be a tomato relish, a ground peanut garnish, yogurt or curd, cucumber, spicy coconut, spicy onion or mint dipping sauce in Indian cuisine. A chutney often uses a tart fruit such as sharp apples or rhubarb. In this chutney, sweet raisins are the fruit of choice.
BAGUETTE WITH TOMATO CHUTNEY, CHEDDAR CHEESE & ARUGULA
A tasty sandwich is a simply a toasted hot baguette spread lavishly with tomato chutney, layered with thick slices of extra-sharp cheddar cheese then topped with bright peppery arugula. Imagine Tomato Chutney slathered on the burger of your choice, your burger to another level.

As always, enjoy. B
