Delicious Ice Cream in Portland at Salt & Straw

Unless you’ve been sleeping this past summer (and I write past, because it’s Fall 2012 already) you know what I’m talking about when I talk Salt & Straw and the delicious Ice Cream concoctions they are churning up.

Salt & Straw all started with someone’s dream, and it manifested in to (so far) two local scoop shops.

I went on a pilgrimage to Salt & Straw in Portland for some Ice Cream yesterday for two reasons:

The earliest cones were rolled by hand, from hot and thin wafers, but in 1912, Frederick Bruckman, an inventor from Portland, Oregon, patented a machine for rolling ice cream cones. He sold his company to Nabisco in 1928, which is still producing ice cream cones as of 2012.

Salt & Straw is one of the best ice cream shops from coast-to-coast and I just had to try the ice cream deliciousness.

What Flavors Can You Savor At Salt & Straw Ice Cream?

Q:  What flavors can you savor at Salt  & Straw Ice Cream?

A:  Why, all of them silly!!

You are NOT going to believe the flavors — for every palette, indeed.  I sampled the Brown Buttered Popcorn with Pink Peppercorns and the Ceviche with Habanero chili, soon to be a Salt & Straw classic.

My palette really isn’t that sophisticated, so I settled for the Almond Brittle with Salted Chocolate Ganache at the Salt & Straw.  DELICIOUS!  Brilliant paring of crunch, salt, almond brittle in their wonderful 17% butterfat ice cream base.

Honey Balsamic Strawberry with Cracked Pepper ~ Chocolate With Gooey Brownies ~ Sea Salt Ice Cream with Caramel Ribbons ~ Double Fold Singing Dog Vanilla ~ Cinnamon Snicker Doodle ~ Coffee and Bourbon ~ Pear With Blue Cheese ~ Brown Ale With Bacon ~ Lemon Basil Sorbet ~ AquaBeet~ Cream of Bone Marrow with Smoked Cherries.  The flavor board will change seasonally

Salt & Straw Thinking Locally

With every combination of flavor there is a story . . . a connection . . . a romance of flavors and friends.

I’m telling you, eating this is just as good as knowing the wonderful stories behind each flavor.  The logistics along on just getting the ice cream ingredients is staggering!

The nice folks at the Salt & Straw donate to Family Dogs New Life Shelter, a no kill shelter.

We’re Salt & Straw, Portland’s farm-to-cone ice cream shop. Our ice cream is handmade in small-batches using only all-natural dairy with the best local, sustainable and organic ingredients Oregon has to offer, as well as imported flavors from small, handpicked farms and producers around the world. We start with local cream from Lochmead Dairy in Eugene, Oregon. All their cows were born right there on their third generation, family farm so we know it’s the highest quality we can get and super fresh.
