Merlot-Poached Figs


1 cup merlot wine
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3/4 cup dried black mission figs, halved lengthwise
1/4 cup dried cherries
1 cinnamon stick
1 1/3 cups fat-free vanilla frozen yogurt


Whisk the merlot, honey, and vanilla extract in a small saucepan until combined. Add the figs, cherries, and cinnamon stick. Bring to a simmer, partially cover, and cook until the fruit plumps, about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat, cover, and set aside to steep, at least 10 minutes and up to 2 hours. Divide the frozen yogurt among 4 bowls (1/3 cup each) and top with warm or room temperature compote. Serve.
