For the spicy fig and plum chutney, start by heating the oil and sauté the shallot until softened. Add the mustard seeds, coriander and grated ginger. Cook for a further 2 minutes.

Add all the remaining ingredients. Bring the mixture up to the boil over a medium high heat, stirring all the while.

Turn the heat down slightly, cover partially with a lid and simmer for 40-45 minutes. Stir the chutney from time to time to ensure the base doesn’t catch. The chutney should be sticky and relatively thick.

Spoon into hot sterilized jars and seal immediately.
