Note: To substitute dried figs for fresh, make a syrup with 2 cups water and 1/2 cup sugar flavored with 1 Tbs. grated orange zest and half of a vanilla bean. Simmer this syrup for about 5 minutes before adding 12 to 15 dried Black Mission or Calmyra figs. Continue simmering until the figs are tender, 30 to 45 minutes. Chill the figs in their poaching liquid before adding them to the compote. Don’t use the fig-poaching liquid as part of the compote syrup–it tends to taste stemmy.
