Figs are among the oldest fruits.  Figs are  wonderful straight off the tree And what’s really nice you can also eat the peel. Many Cajun love making fig preserves – Great with bread, corn bread, or over cream cheese as an appetizer. Another sweet use is fig ice cream – so good. Works best with very ripe figs. This recipe is an adaptation from Cooks Tour of the Mississippi recipe



  • 4 eggs
  • 1 quart milk
  • 2 cans evaporated milk 12oz
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 quart very ripe figs peeled
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup fig syrup from fig preserves (optional)


Step 1

Beat eggs with mixer until very frothy

Step 2

Add the sugar and mix well

Step 3

Gradually add the milk and the vanilla and beat well.

Step 4

Add the figs and mix well

Step 5
