Autumnal kitchen

Today, instead of the scents of summer soft fruits wafting through the kitchen, there's been an autumnal smell in the air - vinegar boiling with spices ready to pickle onions later this week. It's a smell that always reminds me of the vast amount of chutney making that goes on at the end of Summer when I'm trying to use up green tomatoes and supersized marrows. Coupled with a drizzly afternoon, today could be a day in September.
