How to preserve tomatoes

When summer tomatoes are in abundance, it can be difficult to decide what to do with them all. This is where preserving comes into play! We’ve made plenty of sauce for pasta and pizza base meals but wanted something different like chutney that would go great on toast, with crackers and cheese or as an ingredient within recipes – this recipe reflects our desire while still being delicious on its own too!

What is the difference between tomato relish and tomato chutney?

Tomato relish and tomato chutney are both types of preserves made from tomatoes. However, there is a difference between the two in terms of their texture and taste. Tomato relish is made by chopped or puréed tomatoes that are cooked down into a thick, jam-like consistency. On the other hand, tomato chutney is made by cooking chopped tomatoes with vinegar and spices until it forms a thick sauce. As a result, tomato chutney is more tart and spicy than relish.
