    Lennie's Note:

    You can serve this over ice cream or yogurt, or serve it on its own with a dollop of whipped cream. Freshly grated nutmeg is also a nice addition when serving. It also makes for a great breakfast. Prep time includes the sitting time.

      Lennie, what a great dish. I made it for breakfast and we ate it all, so no ice cream topping for us later. :-( I loved using the micowave while making the rest of the breakfast. One thing, I could not find dried figs at my supermarket, so I substituted dried peaches. It was still swell!! I am still on the lookout for the figs so I can make it again for sure. Thanks for posting a great, easy recipe.

      I followed the recipe exactly. I did find it very sweet,must be the figs. I had it for breakfast. I think it might be very good as a dessert with ice cream or whipped cream. I might try it again with different dried fruit for breakfast.

      Made this to go on some homemade vanilla ice cream we were given. Used a bunch of mixed dried fruits(pears, peaches, apricots, prunes, and apples)and had no lemon so used fresh orange juice. But it turned out delightful. DH says he wants to try it on oatmeal for his breakfast soon. I'm sure there an dozens of variations and combinations to try. I love the method-this is so simple and so quick! Thank You Lennie, this is one I'll be using often.
