Spicy Fig Chutney

If I am not mistaking, last autumn figs were everywhere available, however this year I had some trouble finding fresh and good quality figs. Last weekend all of a sudden I've found myself in the fig paradise, and noone could stop me! I love figs, such a gorgeous fruit! I was even lucky enough to find some fresh dates. I have been seeking for those for ages! After wondering how I should combine the two delicious fruits, I had the idea of a spicy fig chutney with dates. And it indeed was a great one! It goes just perfectly well with cheese!

450 g figs
100 g fresh dates
1/4 teaspoon fresh ginger
5-6 coriander seeds
star anise
piece of cinnamon
150 ml whie port wine
50 ml sherry vinegar
50 g sugar

Chop the figs and the dates. Melt sugar over low heat, add fruit and caramelise. Pour vinegar over it, let it reduce, then add wine, spices and cook for 25-30 minutes. Pour it hot into jars.
