6 servings (serving size: 2/3 cup compote, 1/2 cup ice cream, and 2 teaspoons pistachios)

Sweet, sour, and cool sensations combine in this intoxicatingly perfumed dessert. Look for rose water and cardamon pods in natural-foods stores or Indian markets. If you can't find cardamom pods, substitute 1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom.

Step 3

Combine pineapple, raisins, and rose water in a large bowl. Pour lime mixture over pineapple mixture, and toss gently to combine. Cover and chill up to 24 hours. Serve with ice cream and pistachios.
