Recipe: Saffron & Rose Water Popsicles


¼ – ½ teaspoon saffron, crushed to powder form

1 – 2 cups boiled water

2 – 3 tablespoons rose water

2 – 4 tablespoons sugar

(Only a small quantity of saffron is required, but the measurements of sugar and rose water can vary widely depending on your preferences of taste and sweetness.)


Boil water and pour into a clear dish. Add sugar to water and stir until dissolved. Taste and adjust for sweetness. Stir in saffron, a little at a time, until the mixture is a deep yellow color. Add rose water, again adjusting for flavor and fragrance. Pour liquid mixture into popsicle molds or small cups and freeze.
