Cook the plums, sugar and 100ml of water in a large pan over a medium-high heat for 15 mins or until the plums have begun to break down, skimming any scum from the surface.
Add in the fig leaves and simmer for a further 10 mins before adding the lemon juice and cooking for a further 5 mins until most the water has cooked off and it is nearly set – it’s fine if the compote is a little loose as it’s better than being overset.
Spoon into a sterlised jar and leave to cool before storing in the fridge. Use on greek yogurt, in a fool, on toast or to fill a cake.
