The Best Pistachio Ice Cream


Tonight we stopped at O'Falafel for a quick dinner before heading to Westminster University for a talk on Great Salt Lake migratory birds. I indulged in the most intense pistachio ice cream I've ever tasted. There were so many ground pistachios, the texture was more like crunchy peanut butter. There was a generous portion of pistachios sprinkled on top as well. I even detected a slight crunch that reminded me of those sprinkles on DQ cones. The girl at the counter offered somewhat of a trade secret; that a powder was used in the making. Fred offered an ingenius guess; possibly they used pistachio pudding mix? I will be working on re-creating this delight in my home ice cream machine. Oh My. I may sneak by for this treat on my way home from work and forget to tell Fred. (Hats off to O' for serving this delight in an ICE COLD porcelain dish.)
