National Ice Cream Month with Salt & Straw
Every month is ice cream month at Salt & Straw, but this July, things are getting even sweeter as they celebrate National Ice Cream Month! Stop by their newest San Francisco scoop shop at 2201 Fillmore Street for the entire month of July to enjoy their latest batch of seasonal ice creams, featuring five new summer berry-inspired flavors. In their hometown of Portland, some of their most popular flavors come from the annual July berry-themed menu and are so popular that people start calling in December, just to make sure that they’ll be back. This month, Head Ice Cream Maker Tyler Malek wanted to share some of those beloved flavors with the San Francisco community.
The Berries Menu will be available from Friday, June 30 to Thursday, August 3 and includes:
Goat Cheese Marionberry Habanero
A company tradition with a fanatical following, this flavor starts with Portland Creamery’s “Sweet Fire” goat cheese churned into a tart, creamy chevre ice cream that is ribboned with a thick, blazing, so sweet marionberry jam that has been infused with fiery habaneros.
Meyer Lemon Buttermilk with Blueberries
This one starts with a Meyer lemon ice cream that is round and warming, not tart and acidic. Buttermilk adds a little sweet-tart and more roundness. For added relishing, blueberries are whirled in to deliver pops of juicy-sweet summer-ness.
Birthday Cakes & Blackberries
This ice cream is an official holiday from adulthood. It tastes like freaking frosting, featuring chunky hunks of three-vanilla cake and swirls of homemade blackberry jam, whirled with technicolor sprinkles.
Fresh Cheese & Strawberries
A “cheesecake-y” ice cream with a slight ribbon of house-made strawberry jam. This flavor features Ancient Heritage Dairy, who are building cheese-aging-caves in the heart of Portland. This ice cream uses their fresh cow’s cheese, Ava.
Wild-Foraged Berry Sherbet
Fresh berries are folded into a bit of cream and sugar, popped into the ice cream maker, and then the amazing berries just do their thing. These berries were found by Tom, the master forager behind Northwest Wild Foods, including wild mountain blueberries and blackberries and whatever other berries he finds.
