Cartwright & Butler Fig Chutney is made by slowly and very gently cooking down ripe figs and sharp apples in dark brown sugar and mellow Modena balsamic vinegar, spiced with cinnamon. The result is a chutney that showcases the jammy, sweet uniqueness of figs. The perfect accompaniment to many cold meats and cheeses, although our particular favourites are Parma ham and a sharp hard cheese. Like all their chutneys and preserves it comes in their signature clip-lid style jar, that is eminently practical as a re-useable airtight storage jar.
about the producer
It all started around 1905 with two sisters in the front room of a terraced house in Yorkshire. When Jennie and Kathrine Adam’s father died leaving them with no income, they started baking and selling their cakes to make ends meet. Their little cottage industry did so well, they soon outgrew their kitchen and they moved to their own bakery, bringing sister Maria into the family business. Their reputation grew and soon they joined forces with the Arnett family, who owned a chain of bakeries, and began to build their business, with a shared vision to be the best bakers in the North. Today the business is run by a new generation of Arnetts, Terry and Tony Arnett, direct descendants of the original founders. Cartwright & Butler is built on a passion for food that puts a smile on your face.
