Nice looking and delicious as a light dessert. I used Macintosh apples, freshly squeezed lemon juice, brown sugar as white gives me a headache, a bit more Iranian rose water which is superior in my experience as opposed to Lebanese & Indian. Made for Veggie Swap 31 ~ February 2011.

Delightful! The shaved ice glitters like little crystals. A very elegant looking dessert that is light and refreshing. Perfect after a large meal. Thanks so much for the post.
