Breakfast Chutney

I love breakfast in bed on a Sunday morning, despite the fact that I get up first to prepare it. The indulgence of something delicious while perusing the news, or a new book, with no rush involved is the perfect start to the day.

This breakfast chutney is easy to throw together and is perfect for summertime when you have a glut of tomatoes or when you have a few that are slightly overripe in the bottom of your fridge. Served with bacon sandwiches or breakfast sausages it adds a whole new level of taste.
