Curry and Fig Spread

This Curry and Fig Spread is savoury and delicious on crackers or apple slices.

I needed a spread in a hurry one day so I started scouting my pantry for ideas and ingredients.

This turned out really well. It is great with crackers or toasted pita points or flat bread.

I think it would also be good to dip carrot sticks or apple slices in too!

Chef’s Tips

  • You can use a smooth spreadable cheddar, which is probably easiest. I was working with what I had on hand so I used old cheddar in brick format. It took a bit of extra blending to get the consistency completely smooth but it is certainly doable.
  • I used Dillons Vermouth which has a bit of an orange taste to the profile. You could use any vermouth or sherry. If you want to avoid the alcohol use some orange juice.
  • The dip will firm up after blending when it is chilled.
  • Give it about 4 hours of fridge time to let the flavours meld.
  • You can make this a day or 2 ahead and leftovers keep well for a day or 2 as well.
