Fig Chutney

Add to Meal Planner


Chutneys are wonderful condiments to keep on hand, preferably in a variety of flavors, though this fig chutney is remarkably versatile and pairs well with a wide range of other flavors. With their sweet and spicy taste, chutneys can be used to perk up sandwiches, dips and spreads, or roasts when served as an accompaniment. Chutney is also excellent as part of a cheese platter or charcuterie board with cured sausage and meats.

    1. In a pan, heat the oil. Add the chopped onion and cook until translucent, stirring occasionally.
    2. Add the remaining ingredients, except the figs. Cook for 20 minutes over low heat.
    3. Remove the stems from the figs and cut into pieces (peeled or unpeeled). Add to the pan, cover and cook for 5 to 10 minutes, until figs are tender.
    4. Remove the cover and let cook over low heat, stirring often, until the mixture thickens and resembles jam.
    5. Let cool and store in sterilized jars. Serve with roast beef or strong cheeses.

    This chutney is the bees knees! I love the fresh ginger and cinnamon stick. You just can't beat plants in their fresh form. Just one question: What to do with the LEMON? It doesn't state directions. But what I did was chop it up skin and all, and that seems to work. Thank you for this delectable and oh-so-easy recipe! :o)
