2 cups packed soft dried California white figs (10oz) with stems removed
1 32 oz container whole milk plain yogurt (approx 3 1/2 cups)
2 1/2 teaspoons unflavored gelatin (from a 1/4 oz envelope)

Special equipment: ice cream maker

Bring sugar and 1 cup water to a boil in a 2 1/2 to 3-quart heavy saucepan over moderately high heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Add figs and then reduce heat and simmer, covered until plump and very soft, 25-30 minutes. Drain figs in a sieve set over a bowl, and then return syrup to pan. Cook syrup over moderate heat, swirling pan occasionally, until a deep caramel, 4-5 minutes. (Syrup will bubble, so remove from heat periodically to check color.)

Whisk together fig puree and yogurt in a large bowl until combined well and chill, covered until cold, about 4 hours.

Sprinkle gelatin over remaining 1/4 cup water in a very small saucepan and let stand 1 minute to soften. Heat gelatin over moderate heat, stirring until dissolved, then immediately whisk into fig mixture. Freeze fig mixture in ice cream maker. Transfer to an airtight container and put in freezer to harden. Makes about 1 1/2 quart.
