I have been busy in the kitchen today, and finally took myself by the scruff and got my tomatoes and red peppers used up. I made a batch of Spiced Tomato and Red Pepper Chutney. Recipe here:
As you can see, the colour is wonderful - it uses Cider Vinegar and I used white granulated sugar (as I had bought a huge bag last week). It used up the last of my fresh ginger root too, so that's not malingering in the bottom of the veg rack any longer.
I also made a big vat of Ratatouille (minus Aubergine, which I'm not mad on) and a Spelt Loaf . . .
When we were on our way back from Brecon yesterday, I finally got the opportunity to take a photo of a wee cottage I have a soft spot for. It's just outside of Trecastle and as you can see, the lights were the right colour for once!
No room to swing a cat, and it's on the busy A40, but the view across to the Brecon Beacons is beautiful.
