This quick cook version of a very tasty fig and apple chutney was a big hit at a family dinner recently. I served it to my dinner guests as an accompaniment to our favorite Dijon Mustard and Brown Sugar Glazed Ham.

Here’s a photo of that great baked ham recipe.

With Fat Tuesday behind us, we are thinking ahead to Easter. This chutney makes a terrific, delicious side dish to serve with your glazed ham. 

It’s more versatile than that though. We serve it with roast pork and even grilled chicken too. Any leftovers can be used during the week on plan, pan seared pork chops as a quick workday dinner. I do recommend thoroughly reheating it for best flavour.

I like Red Delicious Apples for this recipe but you can use any kind you like. Firmer apples are better for this recipe.

Some steamed vegetables and rice or some roasted potatoes would round out a great baked ham dinner; perfect for mid winter entertaining or any time of the year

Thanks for the amazing Fig & Apple Chutney recipe! I served it with a roasted pork loin and my guest just loved it! I used some of the fresh figs from my fig trees but added some dried figs for a different texture. I will be making this again!

I made 1/2 the chutney recipe as I had a small ham. I should have made the whole recipe. It is delicious! Will certainly make again. Thanks

I am always looking for fig recipes as my fig tree produces an abundance of figs every year. Would I be able to increase this recipe and can it in jars? Or would it be possible to freeze it? If canning is an option, would a ten minute hot water bath be sufficient? Thanks for your advice

Did you use fresh or dry figs? Fresh figs can be hard to come by at certain times of year. Can you use either?
