3 tablespoons honey
2 bags of Chai tea
½ cup dried apricots, quartered
½ cup dried figs, halved if small, quartered if large
½ cup golden raisins
½ vanilla bean
Bring 1 ¼ cup of water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Stir in the honey, then immerse the teabags in the water. Add the dried fruit. Split the half vanilla bean lengthwise, scrape out the inside and stir into the pot then add the vanilla bean itself to the pot. Return to a boil then reduce the heat to medium and simmer, uncovered, for 4 minutes. Remove the teabags then continue to simmer, stirring occasionally, until the liquid thickens to a loose syrup, about 8 minutes more. Remove the vanilla bean and discard. Transfer the compote to a bowl and allow to cool slightly, 5 minutes. Compote will keep in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
