I Had to Make Rose Ice Cream

The Blaze climbers have been putting out so many roses, I pretty much had to make rose ice cream. Recommend serving with a drizzle of pomegranate molasses, which adds great complexity and balance to the sweetness of the rose, and some fresh fruit — mango is great, but berries would also work well.

I used a custard-style recipe: https://food52.com/recipes/37653-rose-ice-cream

(Note — good recipe, but made more than my ice cream maker could hold, so I had to do it in two batches.)

You might want to check that you / people in your household like rose-flavored desserts before going to the effort — Americans aren’t so used to them anymore, though rose used to be a popular flavoring here, before vanilla took America by storm. Kevin sadly thinks rose tastes like soap — he can’t get the floral connotation out of his mind. He’s missing out!
