I like to try new things so when Publix had their fresh figs BOGO it was time for me to try one.
I didn't use a recipe but know that balsamic vinegar is used in lots of fig recipes. SOOOO.....I cut them up (left the skins on because they didn't seem to have a taste and they weren't tough), added a splash of balsamic, a little sugar, and a little lemon juice, then cooked them until they were the consistency I like when I add fruit to my slow cooker yogurt. I like to make my own compotes because I can adjust the sugar. I'm not big on store bought yogurt because even the stuff that should be good for you is so sweet.
