My mother's tomato plants are now cropping fast and furiously so she's giving a lot away. Unfortunately, they tend to be watery with very tough skins, so when she suggested I made chutney with them, I thought I wouldn't. Instead they've been boiled up and sieved for passata. A lot of tomatoes didn't appear to fill many bottles when I'd finished but it tastes wonderful - I checked the dribbles - and is one thing that doesn't have to fit in the freezer!
