No bake recipe
Wre you looking to replace cane sugar? You can use maple syrup, honey, or agave nectar instead of plain sugar. This is a great recipe. I'd just be careful with whatever alternative sweetener you use -- start with a little and taste along the way.
Forgot to include the recipe! Sorry! Here you go: http://www.food52.com/recipes...
I posted a recipe last week for a cranberry compote sweetened only by figs, molasses and a touch of port: http://www.food52.com/recipes... . It needs a few days for the flavors to come together and the sweetness to come forward. But it contains no granulated white or brown sugar at all. ;o)
Oh, sorry! Your tag suggests you want one that's not cooked. The recipe I just referred to is cooked. It helps to bring out the sugar in the apple and figs to cook them a bit. Plus, it's always better to burn off the alcohol in the red wine; otherwise, the dish will taste somewhat bitter. ;o)
