How to Make Chutney

Learn how to make chutney, and you've got a secret weapon in your culinary arsenal! Create a baked brie appetizer, use it as a glaze on chicken, or use it as a condiment for pork.

Directions
1. 
In a large saucepan over high heat, combine the vinegar, sugar, onion, pear, ginger, lemon zest, cinnamon stick, salt, and allspice. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until mixture has thickened to form a thick syrup. Add the figs and raisins and cook just until the figs are beginning to fall apart -- about 30 minutes. Note: most of the liquid given off by the figs should be evaporated.
2. 
Remove cinnamon stick and put the chutney in a glass bowl to cool. While chutney is cooling to room temperature, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Whisk together olive oil, fig jam, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Rub mixture over tenderloin and place on a sheet tray that has been lined with foil and sprayed with a nonstick cooking spray.
3. 
Cook for 18-20 minutes until the pork is done (an internal temperature of 155 degrees F). Allow tenderloin to rest for 10 minutes. Slice and serve with Fig chutney.
