Orchid Ice Cream with Mastic - Pagoto Kaimaki
Kaimaki means "cream" and this ice cream has a double dose! It's a classic preparation made with mastic and salepi (ground orchid root) that is often served with syrupy Greek cakes, sweet syrups, or spoon sweets. This is a softer preparation than the original Turkish dondurma.
