1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon orange liqueur
1/3 cup mascarpone
1 1/2 cups milk
In a saucepan, heat the figs over medium-high heat with the sugar, stirring roughly so they break apart. Cook, stirring, until the figs have mostly melted and begin to bubble, about 5 minutes.
Remove from the heat and stir in the honey, orange liqueur, mascarpone, milk and salt.
Chill well, about 30 minutes in the refrigerator; then freeze according to ice cream maker’s instructions.
Makes 1 quart.
