Thank you, Scott.
 
I've had a similar ice cream from Mashti Malone's, a Persian ice cream shop here in the Los Angeles area.

Sounds like a great recipe. I think I'll try it sometime. I was just getting ready to make some fig vanilla ice cream using some home made fig preserves a friend put up for me last fall.

My nephew is a big fan of Persian Ice Cream (Bastahnee Iranee) but I've never seen it with ginger.  All the places that sell it in MD and VA have white chunks of frozen cream through out the yellow ice cream.
