Saffron Ice Cream With Rose Water Syrup
DirectionsBring the milk and heavy cream to a boil.
Add the saffron, remove from heat and leave to infuse overnight in the refrigerator.
The next morning, beat the egg yolks and sugar in a bowl until smooth and white.
Gradually add the saffron infusion, beating well after each addition.
On the stove top, place mixture in a metal bowl placed over a pot of rapidly boiling water.
Cook until the mixture coats the spoon.
Pass the mixture through a fine sieve.
Save the saffron filaments and return them to the mixture.
Allow to cool.
Once cold, chill in a metal bowl in the freezer and remove at 1 hour intervals and beat until set.
You can also use an ice cream freezer.
