Salt and Straw’s Almond Brickle with salted caramel ganache
Brace yourself for flavors that will redefine what ice cream can be. How about a scoop of Pear & Blue Cheese or Honey Balsamic Strawberry with Black Pepper, or Arbequina Olive Oil, or maybe Stumptown Coffee & Burnside Bourbon.
Salt & Straw ice cream boasts 17% butterfat (bring it!), and is on the conservative side of sweet which lets the flavors really shine through.
Shown here is Almond Brittle with Salted Ganache. Yeah, I know, try to resist.

First the good news: you can learn the secrets of Jeni Britton Bauer’s ice cream making by picking up her New York Times best-selling book, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams at Home. The cookbook was dubbed the “homemade-ice cream-making Bible” by The Wall Street Journal and earned Jeni a James Beard Award, America’s most coveted honor for those writing about food and the culinary arts.
Now here’s better news: Skip the DIY route and just have some pints of ice cream, sorbet or frozen yogurt delivered right to your door. Jeni opened Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams in 2002 in Columbus, Ohio’s North Market. Her ice creams have been praised by Time (“America’s best”), Cooking Light (“deadly delicious”), and Saveur (“revolutionary”), while Food & Wine stated, “No one makes ice cream like Jeni Britton Bauer.”
Jeni and her kitchen team make every ice cream, sorbet, and frozen yogurt with grass-grazed Ohio cream, local produce, and carefully sourced ingredients including rare, fair-trade vanilla and bean-to-bar chocolate. Signature flavors include Wildberry Lavendar, Whiskey and Pecans, Salty Caramel, or how about Goat Cheese with Red Cherries. Tempted? Me too!
