Fig Bourbon Compote

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).
