If you don’t have access to fresh figs, try this dried fig compote which is versatile as a dessert with a ball of vanilla icecream, or eat with a dollop of yoghurt and sprinkle of muesli. Best of all, it lasts in the fridge for a couple of weeks.
- Into a bowl place the figs, prunes, apricots, brown sugar, star anise, cinnamon and peel. Pour over the orange juice, stirring to mix well. Leave to marinate for 2 hours.
- Pour the mixture into a medium-sized pot. Place it onto a low heat and bring to a simmer for 20 minutes until the fruit is soft.
- Remove and cool completely before serving topped with nuts.
