The figs are already ripe and perfume the gardens and the alleys of the villages. To vary compotes and jams, concoct chutney, a sweet and savory condiment of Indian origin, which will deliciously accompany your cheese platters, sandwiches, meats and foie gras throughout the fall and winter. The chutney will keep for about six months, thanks to the vinegar and sugar that make it up.
