Very occaisionally I decide to get my bake on and remind myself why I'm so lazy when it comes to cooking. It's an awful lot of hard work!

The apple tree in my parents' garden produced an overabundance of fruit this year, and in an attempt to get through some of it before all the apples go bad I made some Tomato and Apple Chutney. It turned out really well - though the recipe totally underestimates how much it makes - I filled 11 and a half jam jars! Now I'm after some yummy bread, smelly cheese and I'm sorted for sandwiches all winter I reckon!

This looks amazing! My Mum makes an amazing tomato chutney, and I'm going to be heartbroken when I run out of it here at uni!

This looks great! I love your photography. I keep meaning to make jams and chutney but haven't yet. They would make tasty christmas gifts.

These lovely images are making me hungry - i so wish that i didnt ruin everything that i try to bake!

Dream! I wish I had a whole cupboard dedicated to chutneys. I absolutely cannot wait for Christmas & free reign over the cheese aisle in the supermarket. Let's not forget the crackers! (Maybe I sound a little like Wallace here, who knows.)

11 and 1/2 glasses?!?! That's a great harvest indeed :) I always make green tomato chutney (since my tomatoes never ripen in our chilly climate here). Next time I'll add some apples.
Beautiful photos, too. xo

This looks delicious. I still have quite a few apples and tomatoes to use up so perhaps I should give it a try on the weekend.

I also felt like baking recently and made a peach cobbler that I'll blog next week. I always forget how much work it is until I'm covered in flour and the kitchen's a mess, and I've no choice but to forge ahead! :)

Looks so good, i love chutney - the more exotic the better! I went to a food fair once where they had an apple and lavender chutney. They said it goes well with pork. I didn't buy any and now i'm regretting it! x

I agree that these photos are really inspiring. The reds and your use of contrast is great. Enjoy the fruits of your labour (and autumn).

Thank you so much for commenting on my blog, by the way. Yours looks so professional and is well-written too. I really appreciate you taking the time and leaving some thoughtful feedback.

Warm Wishes,
Lauren
