A chutney made with dried fruit? Yes, it’s possible, says Carolin Schaar, gebana employee and blogger. This chutney is versatile, prepared quickly and has a long shelf life. Recipe by Carolin Schaar, CaroKocht
This fig chutney is quick to make and is ideal for starter platters, for instance with cheese, dips and crackers. It can also round off a sandwich or burger. Or you can serve it with curry and rice. Or you can use it to season a salad dressing. The flavours lend themselves particularly well to radicchio, walnuts, goat cheese and feta.
Add the port and balsamic vinegar to a medium-sized saucepan and dissolve the sugar. Add the spices. Bring the liquid to a boil briefly and then add the apple and fig pieces.
Now let everything simmer on low heat until no liquid is visible in the saucepan. Stir regularly so that the chutney does not stick to the bottom of the saucepan.
Pour the finished mixture into jars that have been rinsed with hot water. Close them and turn them upside down. The chutney will keep for a few months without any problems.
Keep in the refrigerator after opening!

Smallholders and local producers harvest and refine products of extraordinary quality worldwide. But for many of these producers there is no adequate or stable market. You can buy directly from these producers via the Access to Market Platform and help them to participate in the market. The principle behind this is crowd ordering – a new trade model whereby a number of consumers order a product together so as to achieve a minimum order quantity. We at gebana support the producers with our know-how, and organise the logistics.
Enable someone to make their first export with your order. Please note: Unexpected events often lead to delays, and you may find that the quality is not yet perfect. For this reason, your feedback is absolutely essential. The export experience and your feedback are important steps for the producers towards accessing the market. As a customer, you are witness to the whole process, playing your part in pioneering work.
You can order from these producers simply and directly. You receive your product as soon as the minimum order quantity has been reached and the products are ready. The risk for you is minimal, since the producers already have a product that is ready for market. This sales channel is beneficial to both the producers and the consumers, since it cuts out the middle man.
Be part of the development of supply chains and support innovation! Some of the ways you can do this include testing new products, giving feedback, or financially supporting the producers in their next steps. In doing so, you will be able to see for yourself how the products and supply chains develop.
This is where you can see all the completed projects on the Access to Market Platform at a glance. You can find out where products are now available from or whether the producers are still seeking a trade partner.
