Occasional SFist contributor Jerry James Stone (Cooking Stoned/KQED Bay Area Bites) has the perfect treat for your late summer blues: Fig, Vanilla and Sour Cream Popsicles. The ingredients are simple (1 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 granulated sugar, 1 vanilla bean, 1 1/2 cup sour cream, 5 figs thickly sliced), but the payoff is immense.

Watch how he makes these beauties below:

Those of you in the Bay Area might also be able to score one of Stone's creamy treats... if you're lucky. He has been known to hand out free pops in Dolores Park, so look for him there on sunny weekends afternoons.
