And, indeed, they were lovely:
Creamy texture, lovely taste, and although our eyes were screaming that something was clearly wrong, our tongues were very happy indeed.
(That's after dicing, parboiling and covering in oil, salt and garlic then being stuck in the oven for half an hour. Yum. The chicken was also lovely, I hadn't peeled tomatoes myself before, but it turns out to be trivially easy.)
