2 cups heavy cream
1 cup water
8 oz. dried figs, stems removed and quartered
1 Tbl lemon juice
1/4 cup honey
At least four hours prior to making the ice cream, combine the figs, water, lemon juice and honey in a small sauce pan and simmer until the figs are soft, about ten minutes. Take the mixture off the stove and pour into a food processor or blender. Blend until the figs resemble a thick jam. Cool the fig mixture in the refrigerator until completely chilled. Once chilled, combine with the cream and pour into the ice cream maker according to the machine’s instructions.
