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
