Stone Fruit and Fig Chutney

Author Debi


  • 2 cups stone fruits peaches, plums, apricots, or nectarines, diced
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Anaheim chiles finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 3/4 cup figs quartered


  1. Combine the first eight ingredients (stone fruits through cinnamon).
  2. Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add mustard seeds and cook about 1 minute, covered (keeping the pan covered keeps the seeds from popping out). Add stone fruit mixture and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer about 10 minutes until mixture thickens. Stir in figs and cook an additional 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

Recipe Notes

Serve chutney over chicken, pork, or steak. Chutney is great on a sandwich. It also makes a great gift.
