1 quart crushed, peeled figs
1 1/2 cups milk

Variation: One (29−ounce) can apricots or any other fruit (crushed and pushed through a sieve) can be
used in this recipe, the amount determined by the strength of the fruit.


Combine sugar, water, vinegar and salt and bring to a boil. Cook to the thread stage (230 degrees F).

Pour syrup slowly over egg whites, beating constantly until mixture is thick and smooth. Fold in figs

and milk. Pour mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's directions.
