Do You Love Saffron+Sugar+Cardamom+Pistachios?

OMG, if you do, then I have a major experience for you. Take Tocanini's Saffron Ice Cream and combine it with Christina's Kulfi ice cream, and you have something similar to but less rich than the Indian dessert, Kesar Pista. It can be found in the freezer at EZ Indian Market in Woburn Ctr. and Little India Market by the Somerville Market Basket. It is made of milk and cream and the above ingredients and basically has the texture and mouth feel of an especially luscious pot de creme of cardamom, saffron and pistachio, with a distinct tang of lemon or yoghurt. Incredibly rich and creamy perfect. (But no eggs- go figure.) Directions are to defrost it a few hours, but eating it frozen/cold is like having frozen pudding or frozen custard. Man o man, i have to stay away from this stuff (she said, having gone out earlier to stock up on it :-} )Orange box, " Deep" brand.
