"This is a great way to use up some fresh figs. It is such an easy and popular appetizer in our home. We serve this with buttery crackers."

fresh figs, stemmed and quartered
1 (8 ounce) package
I made this with some fresh figs that I got in my Bountiful Basket. It was the first time I have ever had fresh fig and we LOVED it! I didn't have any good buttery crackers, so we ended up putting it over vanilla ice cream and it was so good. I only had a few figs so had to halve the recipe. I will definitely make this again (when I can get some fresh figs)!
Really good! I made the compote the day before and refrigerated it, then when I was ready to use it I poured it over the cream cheese. This would also be great over vanilla ice cream. The figs I had weren't the best, but this recipe made them yummy. I think the brown sugar could even be reduced a bit w/o compromising the flavor. I would make this again! Thanks for sharing. :)
Excellent. I cut back on the sugar and added a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
My family really enjoyed this as an appetizer.
