Dried Fruit Chutney

Homemade chutney is something you should always have in your refrigerator to accompany any savoury dishes. It‘s so easy to make with regular pantry items!


  • some chopped dried fruits like apricots, figs, pineapple, raisins, cranberries…
  • some white or rose wine of your choice
  • some white/apple vinegar and sugar
  • optional: some mustard seeds


  1. In a thick bottom pan, throw in chopped dried fruits of your choice, pour in some white/rose wine until it barely covers the dried fruits.
  2. Add 1-3 Tbsp of vinegar and sugar to taste, then simmer on low heat for 10 min with lid open to evaporate alcohol in the wine.
  3. Taste to see if you like the sweetness or acidity and adjust by adding more vinegar or sugar.
  4. When the fruits have softened, throw in some mustard seeds (you can also crush half of them using a mortar and pestle) and simmer for another 10min until everything comes together. The texture should be soft and sirupy.
  5. Cool and put in a jar and keep in refrigerator. Serve with cheese plate or charcuterie board, or simply spread a layer in the bottom of cheese sandwich with brown bread. Yum!🤤
