Fresh Fig Chutney

Written By Srimathi Mani on Saturday, September 13, 2008 | 2:51 PM



This morning, I met Farmer Steve(above) at the Poway Farmers Market (PFM). He had some fruits in his stall that no one else had. Jujube, Sapote, Figs and Raw Banana to mention a few. I picked up some figs and farmer Steve was generous enough to add a few green figs to my basket. On the way home I thought I could make fig and honey ice cream as the fig were very sweet and ripe or a dessert but instead I tried a new chutney. I used roasted green and crushed red chillis, garlic and a few spices. My entry to Lore's Original Recipe event.

  5. Uma, It was sweet because figs were sweet but I added the roasted chillies and it got a little spicy.It had a sweet and spicy taste in the end.

  11. This would have tasted super-delicious, I believe :) I love figs but haven't tasted the fresh fruit yet...only the dried ones. I will make this chutney when I get to buy these fresh figs.

  13. Sorry, the chutney cannot be stored at room temp. Fig tends to go bad fast. So its best to store in the fridge for a week or two.
