I had tons of fresh figs from a tree out back, so I used about two plus cups of fresh diced figs. I also have some fancy balsamic vinegars: traditional balsamic, black cherry balsamic and Sicilian lemon white balsamic which I used in 3 parts. I used a sweeter scotch since I didn't have bourbon. I reduced on low for quite a while, maybe 40

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...
