One of the earliest forms of frozen dessert, this traditional Persian treat is a refreshing blend of rose water and — believe it or not — vermicelli noodles, which results in a smooth texture similar to sorbet.



Combine water and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Simmer until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and stir in rose water and lemon or lime juice. Let cool completely.

Soak noodles in hot water until pliable, according to package directions. Drain and rinse under cold water. Cut or tear noodles into 1-inch pieces.

Combine noodles, syrup and diced nectarines in a shallow glass baking dish. Place in freezer. After 1 hour, stir mixture with a fork. Return to freezer and chill until the desired consistency is reached, 1 to 2 hours more.

To serve, scrap ice with a fork and scoop into bowls. Garnish with pistachios and lemon or lime wedges.
