Balsamic Fig Chutney

Fig chutney 2

  • Glug of Olive Oil
  • 1/2 a White Onion
  • Small Handful of Fresh Thyme
  • 250g of Dried Figs
  • 1/3 Cup of Balsamic Vinegar (80ml)
  • 2 Tablespoons of Honey or Date Syrup

This recipe is one of my mom’s masterpieces and is a family favourite. It transforms even the most mediocre of snacks into a gourmet masterpiece. My favourite way to enjoy it is paired with blue cheese, parma ham and rocket. However you choose to have it I’m sure it’ll be delicious, it’s even good right off the spoon!

Start by dicing the onion and dried figs.

Heat a glug of olive oil in a pan and then add in the onion and thyme. Cook until the onions are nice and soft but not crispy!

Add in the balsamic and honey and leave it to simmer and reduce for about five minutes.

Then mix in the figs, making sure they’re evenly coated in the onion mixture.

Pour in enough water to generously cover the bottom of the pan, leave it to reduce stirring occasionally.

When it’s nice and sticky and all the water is gone it’s done!
