We combine two of our favorite ingredients in this recipe – figs & bourbon!
While we were preparing a simple syrup with fresh figs, we decided the figs were just so beautiful and tasty that we took a different direction. We were going to fix up a fig/bourbon drink anyway, so why not make the figs into a great condiment. We’ve served this fig compote with cheese, salami, and roast pork, with rave reviews. It’s also simple. (By the way, we’ll post the fig/bourbon drink on our beverages part of the site).
The recipe will also work with dried figs, if you can’t find fresh (see recipe notes).
