Recipe – Fig Compote

I know what your thinking, I haven’t put up a recipe in a long time, and I decide to come back with fig compote? Really? Well…. that’s exactly what I am doing. I’m breaking all the rules on this one.

Actually, the next full recipe I plan to post is for a certain sandwich at Cluster’s and Hops that I loved so much I had to figure out how to make it at home. In order to make the sandwich though, we first have to make fig compote to go on the sandwich. Hence, the reason this post exists.

I don’t think a lot of people have eaten figs outside of a fig newton, which is a shame because they are delicious.
