Preparation steps

1.

For the sandwich, cook unpeeled sweet potatoes in boiling, salted water for about 20-30 minutes. Let cool and cut into thick slices and remove peel.

2.

Mix oil and crushed garlic.

3.

Heat butter and garlic oil in a pan and fry sweet potato slices on both sides briefly and drain on kitchen paper.

4.

Rinse peppers, drain and wipe dry and halve and remove seeds and ribs and cut into 2-3 cm (approximately 1 inch) wide strips. Cook peppers on preheated grill on both sides for 2-3 minutes and season lightly with salt.

5.

Cut rolls in half transversely and arrange chorizo slices on lower halves of bun and place sweet potato slices on top of chorizo. 

6.

Arrange peppers, 1/2 tablespoon fig chutney and arugula over sweet potato on each sandwich. Place top bun half on sandwich and secure with a deli toothpick and serve. 

7.

For the fig chutney, cut figs into small pieces and soak fig pieces in port wine, red wine, vinegar and lemon juice for 1-2 hours.

8.

Stir together fig mixture and remaining ingredients and bring to a boil in a large pot. Cook for about 30-40 minutes until figs are soft and stir frequently, so that mixture does not scorch. Pour chutney into warmed glass jars and seal and invert and allow to cool. To preserve the chutney for longer, you will need to process the jars according to manufacturer's instructions, or visit  http://nchfp.uga.edu/.
