Chutneys 3 Fresh fig and date

 FRESH FIG & DATE ...non spicy!!

This is a recipe from a supermarket website. I never shop there on principle....but this is a good recipe!

Olive oil.  4 tbsp.     Onions 1kg chopped.      Dates 1kg.  Chopped.    Fresh figs. 1kg chopped.

Tomatoes or Apples 500g (cored and) chopped .  Brown sugar. 500g. Cider vinegar 550ml

This uses two pans...

1. Heat oil,fry onions 15 minutes then add chopped dates, cook until sticky.

2. Cook the rest together for 20 minutes , add the onion mix, cook for 30 minutes.

Pot into HOT jars, cover as usual with wax circles and wax and screw lids.

Mature for at least a month.   Keeps at least for two years...we found a jar lurking at the back of the cupboard, and with the wax, and the tape around the jar lid it hadn't dried out...and it was lovely with some white crumbly cheese, and sliced apple and oatcakes...
