Alton Brown, as soon as you see a bubble hit the surface, take it off the heat. Let this cool to almost room temperature, too.
Whisk the eggs into the milk mixture. Then stir in the fig mixture. Mix well, but note that the fig mixture will likely clump together a bit. Put in the fridge overnight. The next day, process the mixture in an ice cream maker until doubled in size. (I should have remembered to take a picture of this part. I'm still mesmerized watching it and must have been distracted.) Then allow to sit in the freezer for another hour or so to harden up a bit.
