Ingredients to make a fig chutney

To make this fig chutney, you need figs of course but not only! Here are some tips on how to choose your ingredients well.

  • Figs: Choose ripe and seasonal figs. The fig season begins in August and ends in October, depending on the year and the region. This fig chutney is a great way to avoid wasting figs that are slightly bruised or starting to get overripe.
  • Red onion: Red onion enhances the taste of the chutney and also gives it a nice color. You can replace it with a yellow onion. It won’t make too much difference in taste but it will give less color to the chutney.
  • Dry white wine vinegar: White wine vinegar will give acidity to the chutney. This is what sets it apart from a jam. Choose a dry white wine vinegar, therefore not sweetened.
  • Cane sugar: Cane sugar is simply used to sweeten the chutney. It is also thanks to the sugar that the chutney will keep for a long time (see below). You can replace the cane sugar with white sugar.
  • Fresh ginger: Fresh ginger gives a slightly spicy touch to chutney. This is an optional ingredient but that I definitely recommend!
