  • 6 medium jars Ingredients 3 tbsp vegetable or rapeseed oil 2 medium onions, peeled and finely chopped 12 fresh figs, any tough stalks removed and roughly chopped 400g dried figs, any tough stalks removed and roughly chopped 2 large bramley apples, peeled and finely chopped 200g sultanas thumb-sized piece of ginger, peeled and finely chopped 1 heaped tsp salt 1 heaped tsp of each (or a selection) of the following spices (I used all!): mixed spice, ground cloves, ground coriander, chilli flakes 180ml malt vinegar 180ml cider vinegar 300g soft brown sugar Instructions In a very large saucepan or preserving pan, heat the oil, and add the onions. Cook gently for 5 minutes until softened. Whilst they are cooking, prepare the figs and apples. Add the figs, apples and sultanas to the pan, and then the ginger, salt and spices, and finally pour in the vinegar. Let the mixture simmer gently for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally to make sure it is not catching on the bottom. Finally, add the sugar, bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer gently for 10-15 mins until thick. When it has cooled slightly, pour into warm, sterilised jars and keep in a cool dark place until Christmas! 3.4.3177
