The ice cream or gelato flavour I default to if available (and it always is in Europe) is Pistachio! The Italians do it very well, the French have Pistachio down perfectly and it all comes back to the pistachios or the pistachio paste. SO, we made our own. I do eat it from the jar. It is so delish! This recipe is super creamy, simple with or without a churner, but easier with one. Happy Summer Days ahead!
