Kürbiskern Eis – Pumpkin Seed Ice-cream

I had an evening stroll at the “Alte Donau” old Danube and (accidently of course..what else?) stumbled over a little ice-cream shop. When I saw pumpkin seed ice-cream I knew I had to try it! The taste was quite subtle and reminded me of pistachio but it was very tasty with tiny bits of pumpkin seeds to boost the flavour and remind the person that it is indeed pumkin seed.
Steiermark and in English Styria is a region in Austria, famous for it’s pumpkin seed oil. I heard rumours that they would dunk their vanilla ice-cream in this oil and decided I would rather go with this version. Glad I did, definitely would eat this flavour again.
