I feel relax when I eat saffron desserts. I would like to offer you this delicious dessert. This saffron ice cream is all about balance and of course health and safe: heady saffron, floral honey, and bittersweet orange zest.

First of all, put the egg yolks, honey, and sugar together into a bowl and stir them until thoroughly combined. Add and stir cream, milk, and salt. Then cook over medium heat while you stir frequently the materials until a custard forms on the back of a spoon but a finger swiped across it leaves a clean line, about 170°F.

Now you are ready to make the saffron ice cream so pour through a strainer into an airtight container and stir in saffron and orange zest. Cover and chill in refrigerator until custard drops to 40°F, 4 hours to overnight.
