Chutney is one of my favorite ways to eat figs. I love how the spices and the raisins enhance their taste.
I know fig chutney sounds a little bit like Christmas, but I eat some all year round, using fresh figs if they are in season or frozen if they’re not. This stuff is so good you shouldn’t wait for Santa to make some! Not to mention your house will smell amazingly good.
You can serve some fig chutney with white meat, it’s absolutely delicious. But go crazy and use it also as a spread. It’s a childish way to take your sandwich to the next level! Remember that amazing gourmet sandwich I told you about last week? I used fig chutney! I’ll post the recipe soon.
