Salt & Straw Gives Thanks and Gives Back

 Ice cream for dinner? Yes please! Salt & Straw has released five Thanksgiving dinner flavors for the month of November, from Buttered Mashed Potatoes and Gravy to Spiced Goat Cheese Pumpkin Pie. All five “courses” are available at the Salt & Straw in Pacific Heights, as well as their new location in Hayes Valley.


Beyond serving savory ice cream, Salt & Straw is getting into the spirit of the season by giving back. Salt & Straw will be donating a pint of ice cream to Food Runners, a San Francisco-based organization that works to alleviate hunger, for each Thanksgiving-flavored pint of ice cream sold.


The  November  flavors  will  be  available  from  Wednesday,  November  1  through  Wednesday,  November  22 and include:


Sweet Potato Casserole with Maple Pecans
Maple sugar, caramelized Oregon pecans, and marshmallow are added to a roasted sweet potato ice cream and topped off with hand-churned ribbons of homemade gooey maple fluff.


Buttered Mashed Potatoes & Gravy
Homemade gravy fudge mixed into a potato flavored ice cream.


Persimmon Walnut Stuffing
Chopped pieces of homemade toasted stuffing made with walnut and bourbon raises mixed into a savory spiced ice cream. The spiced ice cream is made of olive oil, salt, pepper, and coriander. For a sweet finish, roasted persimmons are added.


Salted Caramel Thanksgiving Turkey
Turkey stock is cooked with sugar, spices and onions until it bubbles down into a caramel which creates the base of the salted caramel ice cream. Candy-coated roast turkey skins are then mixed into the ice cream.


Spiced Goat Cheese & Pumpkin Pie
Mashed pumpkin is folded into a goat-cheese ice cream sprinkled with pumpkin pie spices.
