Fig Apple Chutney. An easy to make, beautifully balanced, flavourful accompaniment to glazed ham, pork or grilled chicken.
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.
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
