This homemade fig and date syrup combines two delectable fruits with zippy orange zest and a touch of salt. After straining the syrup, save the compote to add to pancake batter, use it to top oatmeal, spread on toast, or even accompany ice cream.

Fig and Date Syrup

Yield: About 1 cup
Active Time:


1 tablespoon coconut sugar
6 dried mission figs, diced
6 Medjool dates, diced
⅔ cups water
¼ teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon cinnamon
11 orange, zested and juiced


Add all syrup ingredients to a small saucepan over medium heat; stir well. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer for 30 minutes; let cool slightly. Strain through a fine mesh strainer, pressing down with the back of a spoon to extract all the liquid; reserve fig and date compote for pancake batter.
