  • Add 2 cups water and the sugar to a saucepan.
  • Cook, stirring constantly, until the syrup boils and the sugar has dissolved; refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.
  • Place the figs in the bowl of a food processor; puree.
  • Add the puree to the chilled syrup; stir in the lime juice.
  • Taste, and add more juice if desired.
  • Freeze sorbet in an ice-cream maker following the manufacturer's directions until the mixture begins to freeze.
  • Then scoop mixture into a storage container, seal tightly, and freeze for several hours or overnight.
  • **Black Mission figs give the sorbet a ruby color, speckled with black if the figs are unpeeled; Green figs will result in pale pink color speckled with green if left unpeeled.
