1. Slice aubergines, sprinkle with salt and leave for 3 hrs, rinse and dry
2. Put sugar, vinegar, raisins, tomato puree in pan, mix.
3.Finely chop onions & chillies add to other ingredients.
4. Heat gently, stirring until sugar is dissolved, simmer until thickened.

That chutney looks and sounds really good. Chutney is something that we have really enjoyed after being introduced to it when we lived in Epsom.

The snow looks so "wintery." Can it possibly mean a long winter ahead for you????

The cousins look as though they are having fun. I love the photo of the big roll with the kids. Too cute.
