Gaz, Persian nougat

I received a box of Shervin Gaz from a friend who had just returned from Iran. Gaz is a popular Persian nougat made with the white milky sap found on the angebin plant along with egg white, sugar, rose water and pistachios. It’s sweet, milky, soft and chewy with a subtle hint of rose water. It is one of my favorite sweets!
