this was easy to prepare with dried figs. i added some candied ginger during the last 15 minutes of cooking time. this had alot more liquid than most fruit compotes that i prepare, but i usually use port or brandy for figs. i think 1 cup of water would have been more than enough. the ginger flavor was very nice.
