I had tons of fresh figs from a tree out back, so I used about two plus cups of fresh diced figs. I also have some fancy balsamic vinegars: traditional balsamic, black cherry balsamic and Sicilian lemon white balsamic which I used in 3 parts. I used a sweeter scotch since I didn't have bourbon. I reduced on low for quite a while, maybe 40

My favorite brand of fig spread is discontinued! This recipe is just the replacement I needed. I will never go fig spreadless again. Okay, so I modified the recipe a tiny bit: we used up all our bourbon for Manhattans, but I had some brandy on hand. Whisky, brandy, orange liqueur, Southern Comfort, I bet any of these would work. If you can find LaPanzanella Black Pepper Crackers, spread the fig compote on the cracker with some Beechers Flagship cheese. Mmmmmmm...

This is so delicious. However I didn't have whiskey so I used coconut rum. Great with cheese and very addictive. It also tastes better and better as days go by. Thanks for sharing @JSchubert
