  • Place plums in a pan with garlic, onions, figs, cardamom pods, caster sugar and 300ml white wine vinegar. Season and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat, stirring for 2-3 minutes until sugar dissolves, then leave to cook for 25-30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until fruit is tender.
  • Add port and further 100ml white wine vinegar to the chutney. Simmer, stirring often, or 30 minutes or until the liquid has almost evaporated.
  • Transfer chutney to sterilised jars and cool, then cover with baking paper and seal with airtight lids.
  • Store in a cool dry place, away from direct sunlight, for at least 1 month before using and keep up to six months before expiry.
  • Refrigerate after opening, at which point the chutney will keep in the refrigerator for about 3 months. Serve with cold roasted or cured meats and bitey cheeses.
