|Breakfast - nutty muesli, skyr & fig compote|
After stocking up on big flavour chutneys, I fancied something sweet and luxurious to have with my morning yoghurt and muesli. This luxury fig compote was made by steeping cacao beans (broken up) in fresh squeezed oranges. Once the orange juice had a distinct taste of chocolate, I added figs and some diced pears for moisture. After simmering, I added a dash of triple sec for even more luxury! It is really delicious with skyr.
Fig & chocolate, fig & orange
Rich sticky brown
Thick and chunky
Figs are obviously the main flavour, but there is a buttery orange flavour behind it. The chocolate flavour isn't very strong, but there's definitely a richness there
