This is a wonderful compote that makes ice cream sing and white meat dance in your mouth. So easy to make. I use agave syrup in place of the sugar (diabetic friendly) and fresh picked figs from my backyard fig tree. I cover the pan with a lid during cooking to make a thinner syrup which is perfect for serving over ice cream or other desserts. For serving the compote over pork or chicken, leave the lid off when cooking so that it thickens up. The second time I made this, I did not have apple cider so I used apricot nectar instead - and it was even better! I am thinking about putting some in ground turkey for exotic grilled turkey burgers. With a thickening agent, it would probably make a great apple-fig pie. Since I have an abundance of figs, I am letting my imagination run wild.
