Saffron Ice Cream with Cardamon and Rose Water
Who doesn’t love ice cream? And who doesn’t love trying new flavors? This one is an Iranian version, I made a mistake by adding the frozen cream pieces at the beggining, now I know that I was supposed to add them at the end. It’s my first custard based ice cream, interesting,can’t wait to try new flavors.
1 cup milk
4 T cornstarch
100 gr sugar
1/4 t saffron dissolved in 50 ml rose water
2 cardamon pods,cracked
100 ml cream
One day ahead, pour the cream in a pan (a thin layer) and freeze.
Boil the milk with the sugar and cardamon.In a bowl mix the cornstarch with cold milk and add to the boiling milk. Mix until starts to thicken,then add the saffron dissolved in rose water.Remove and let cool.
Place in a container in the freezer and cover every 3-4 hours. Dreaming of an ice cream maker,until than I’ll use this method.
Before serving,take out the frozen cream , break into pieces and incorporate into the ice cream.
