    1. 1
      Cover the dried figs with boiling water and set aside until soft, about 2 hours.

      Drain the figs, cut into quarters, and place in a food processor; add in the eggs and process until smooth, about 1 minute.
    3. 3
      Combine the milk and sugar in a saucepan; place over low heat.
    4. 4
      Stir until the sugar dissolves and the milk comes to a boil.
    5. 5
      Immediately remove from the heat.
    6. 6
      With the food processor running, slowly pour the hot milk into the fig mixture through the feed tube.
    7. 7
      Process until completely smooth; pour the mixture into a large, clean bowl and allow to cool slightly.
    8. 8
      Stir in the cream, vanilla, and salt; cover and refrigerate until cold or overnight.
    9. 9
      Stir the chilled custard; freeze in 1 or 2 batches in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s directions.
    10. 10
      When finished, the ice cream will be soft but ready to eat; for firmer ice cream, transfer to a freezer safe container and freeze several hours or overnight.

      I just made this today--so easy to make. I've never made ice cream. I have a cuisinart ice cream/sorbet maker that I use to make sorbet all the time. I followed the directions exactly. I used figlets--smaller figs as that was all I could find this time of year--so I used a few more than 8 due to the size. The taste was amazing--I will be making this again!
