  • Cooking time: 1 hour 20 minutes
  • Total time: 1 hour 35 minutes
  • Makes:2 x 450g jars


    300g figs (about 4 large), chopped
    550g ripe pears, peeled and chopped
    175g light brown soft sugar
    2 tbsp finely grated fresh root ginger
    350ml red wine vinegar
    150g cranberries


    1. Put all the ingredients except 75g cranberries in a large saucepan set over a medium heat. Stir occasionally until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is bubbling. Turn the heat down to a simmer and leave to cook for 1 hour, stirring more frequently as the chutney thickens. Add the reserved 75g cranberries and cook for a further 10 minutes.

    2. Divide the hot chutney between new sterilised jars and cover with lids. Store in a cool, dark place for at least 4 weeks before using. Once opened, keep in the fridge and use within a month
