This easy fruit butter is the perfect alternative to jam or jelly, and is absolutely perfect on Black Pepper-Sage Biscuits. The figs give sweet apples the earthy accent they beg for. Try whisking this together with a little balsamic vinegar and reducing over a low flame to make an unbeatable glaze for grilled chicken.
