Quince Date Chutney - what to substitute for the dates?

MMRuth | Oct 20, 2007 11:24 AM

I'm thinking about making this chutney as I just bought exactly 3 large quince (is the plural really quinces?) at the farmer's market. But, I really dislike apple cider vinegar and am not a huge fan of dates. So - what do you think would be the best things to substitute in - I think I'll probably just use a white wine vinegar, but am not sure about the dates. Cranberries - too tart? Prunes? Dried cherries if I can find them? Apricots? I'm also not a big fan of dried figs, though I do like fresh ones.

Thanks!
