Salt & Straw’s menu of imaginative veggie ice cream flavors are like taking a tour of Portland farmers markets
August – Farmers Market Series
Piles of gorgeous ruby beets from Zenger Farm are grated with sugar to draw out their natural juices, then blend with Aquavit, a deliciously complex Scandinavian-style liqueur from Portland’s House Spirits. The earthy sweetness of the beets pairs perfectly with the spirit’s notes of star anise and caraway. Zenger Farm focuses on educating urban youth about the importance of farming, food, wetland conservation, and environmental stewardship, plus their beets can’t be beat!
