love this! I have a ton of figs in the freezer, always looking for a way to use them up. I bet it was great w that cheese too.

You've combined several of my favorite things: figs, walnuts, plums and gorgonzola! I am constantly attending get-togethers where I need to bring an appetizer, so this is a must try!

Can't way to sit back, relax, watch the Red Carpet, and enjoy my Chutney. Love cheese and fruit (and a glass of wine of course).

This looks so good, Alison. The sweetness of the chutney with the savory Gorgonzola cheese is so enticing.

We have some olive bread here that would actually go really well with this. Now all I need are some figs and walnuts :-/
