Ingredients

1 cup sugar (more or less, depending on taste)
3/4 cup water
4 cups Black Mission figs , stemmed and halved

Cooking Instructions

1. Bring the sugar and water to a boil over high heat. Simmer for 5 minutes. This will dissolve the sugar and make a syrup.

2. Add the fruit and continue to cook for about 5 to 10 minutes, until just tender.

3. Remove the fruit from the juice and set aside. Reduce the juice over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes, until it becomes syrupy. Pour the reduced syrup over the cooked fruit. Serve warm.

4. Serve over Buttermilk Griddle Cakes for a weekend breakfast or over low-fat ice cream for an easy dessert.

For Safekeeping: Cool the compote. Refrigerate up to 5 days.

Serving Size: about 1/2 cup
