Ingredients

How to make it

  • Combine sugar and figs with 1cup water in a small saucepan and stir over a low-heat until the sugar is dissolved. Bring to boil and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Put figs in a food processor with about 1/3 of the syrup and whizz until smooth. Allow to cool.
  • Whisk yolks and eggs in an electric mixer until pale and fluffy.
  • Slowly whisk in remaining hot syrup and beat for 10 minutes.
  • Combine cream and sour cream and stir until smooth.
  • When fig puree is cool combine creams, yolks, and puree with vanilla extract and refirgerate until well chilled.
  • Churn in an icecream machine according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • To serve cut a cross in the top 2/3 of each fig and push them to open up into a pretty flower like shape (see picture). Divide figs between plates and place a large scoop of icecream beside them. Top with toasted pistachios. Enjoy!

    Not terribly elaborate as far a difficulty to make.
    I sounds very decadent and delicious.
    I love luscious recipes that are not overly complicated.
    Thanks.
