Saffron & Rose Persian Ice Cream

IRAN ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ท

Bastani sonnati is the traditional ice cream of Iran, what here in the states is usually just called "Persian ice cream." What is most impressive is the array of new flavors not at other ice cream shops.

But those ingredients in the name of this place?

Saffron and rose water are actually key components of traditional Persian ice cream, along with milk, eggs, and sugar like anywhere. You will also find parts of vanilla and pistachio as a base for any flavor.

So even if you order vanilla or chocolate, there will be a flavor profile that is less familiar and much more deep.

The selections above were made on a blistering October day in 2015 and did include both rose water and saffron, and a few I forget. My strongest memory was a need to return.

Another visit...
