Preserving Summer

Mango season, the tomato harvest—both so luscious and so brief…
5 kg of small yellow mangoes straight from the orchard costs 40 pesos, about $3.5. Add the ingredients for chutney—ginger, garlic, cider vinegar, sugar, onions…

Cook for a while. Adding steam to a steamy day. 

Seal into jars.

Meanwhile cut ripe plum tomatoes into thick slices. Sprinkle with stolen sea salt. If you have it.

Put out on a screen in the sun.
One day.

 Two days.

On the third day (or the forth if you're not in a desert) pack in bags. If you haven’t eaten them all, already.
