A fresh fig compote infused with aromatic vanilla. I had some fresh figs from the supermarket that weren't especially tasty, so I made this compote with them. The result was super delicious and the vanilla complements the figs perfectly. Enjoy over Greek yoghurt, spread over a cool cheesecake, or use to sandwich a summery sponge cake.
I used coconut sugar, also called coconut palm sugar, for this recipe, but brown sugar will work just fine. It tastes similar to brown sugar and does not impart any coconut flavour.
