Spicy Peach and Fig Chutney

Local, juicy peaches have arrived. I almost couldn’t use the peaches any other way but enjoying them as is, but with leftover fresh figs I was compelled to pair them with peach.  I served this on top of grilled Camembert and as a condiment on blue-cheese stuffed sliders.
