My love of all things Huckleberry is no secret and with Memorial Day coming up this weekend I cannot wait to dip a spoon in whatever Josh and Zoe's newest project, Sweet Rose Creamery, has to offer. Small batch ice creams and sorbets are made daily and carry the same seasonal raison de'tre that Huckleberry and Rustic Canyon have become famous for. The sundaes and banana splits are out of a Norman Rockwell painting, down to the toasted almonds and the necessary cherry on top and I cannot get the idea of earl grey ice cream out of my head. And it looks like I'm supposed to fold more ice cream into my diet, because Sweet Rose Creamery is literally down the street. My stomach rejoices, while my thighs aren't quite on board, but easily coerced. A small sacrifice when a perfect bite is on the line. So if you're in an ice cream or sorbet mood (which is always, right?), come early and get in line. Your stomach will thank you.
The perfect bite of the fudge brownie sundae.
The ubiquitous cherry on top.
This is what a banana split is supposed to look like.
I am not a huge strawberry shake person for the same reasons I am not a grape soda or cherry jolly rancher person. However, the bright summer strawberries with their punch of acidity are the perfect counterpoint to the rich vanilla ice cream.
