Last year we planted lots of tomato seeds and ended up with tons to make lovely red, yellow, and green tomato chutney. This year we only bought a few plants, so are not getting quite as many. I can get just as much chutney out of them though, by bulking it out with apples to make it a sweet and fruitier delight.
