Bernard's Bounty

Last year B. came to us with a crate full of goodies from his garden three days before we left. Leeks, plums, onions, carrots. tomatoes and more that I don't remember. Wondelfull, but really much too much for us to eat in just a few days. I spent a morning poring over cookbooks, coffee at my side, and turned out a few chutneys, more jams, and a canned tomato sauce.
The carrot chutney looked a bit funny when I spooned it into its jars, but never mind.
Tonight we had it as a starter: lettuce leaves, a good slice of artisan paté, carrot chutney and brown bread.
An absolute winner!
