Fig Chutney

If ever you are lucky enough to have an autumn glut of figs and you want them to go that little bit further, then this chutney recipe is the perfect solution.


  • four fresh figs
  • 4-6 dried figs
  • 4 tblsp fig jam
  • spice mix - cumin, coriander, ginger and nutmeg
  • grated orange or lemon zest and a little orange juice


  1. This recipe is a bit of a cheat, really, because we are using three different types of fig: dried figs, some that have been made into jam and the fresh ones.
  2. Cut these fresh figs into small pieces. Now you can peel them if you like, but I never do.
  3. And because the chutney will go with all sorts of terrines, patés and cold meats, you can add your own spice mix.
  4. You can add cumin, coriander, ginger and nutmeg. I put some orange or lemon in there as well.
  5. Grate some orange or lemon zest and some orange juice.
  6. And then add a little of the fig jam, stir it for a few seconds and leave to mature.
