It’s fall, and it’s rainy and cold. You need to make this compote. It’s freaking amazing. Put it on ice cream, yogurt, french toast, oatmeal, or eat it plain by the spoonful. End of story. You’re welcome.
Roasted Apples and Figs Compote
- 4 large or 5 small apples, peeled, cored, and diced
- 7-9 fresh figs, quartered
- 3/4 cup orange juice (I think apple cider would be amazing too)
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup raisins (golden raisins would be lovely. Dried cranberries too)
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 lemon, zested
- 1/4 tsp salt
- slight pinch of ground cloves (optional)
- 1-2 tbsp butter, diced
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Heap all ingredients except butter into a casserole dish. Mix together with a spoon.
- Scatter diced butter on top on mixture.
- Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and give a good mix.
- Bake another 30 minutes.
- By now, your house will smell like fall heaven. It’s a good idea to have friends over so they can marvel at the smell.
- Then, scoop some vanilla ice cream or salted caramel gelato into small bowls. Spoon hot compote over ice cream, and commence having a mouth orgasm.
