This week has been a whirlwind of activity. We stocked our pantry with cream, fruit, candy, chocolate, flour, oats, sugar, eggs, butter…etc. The list is endless.
Then we started making ice cream and sorbet. If you want to make the best sorbet you need the best fruit.
Our sorbet is made with fruit and cane sugar. The process is simple. We wash the fruit. Peel, cut, seed and squeeze. Puree. Mix by hand with sugar. And, put it in our batch freezer. The results are a luscious dairy free frozen dessert that tastes like fruit because it is fruit.
Next step, train the staff. We started training our scoopers on food safety, service with a smile, the menu, and portioning.
By the way, that’s not a maraschino cherry on top. That’s a tart cherry from Five Acre Farm. No food coloring. No corn syrup. It’s natural. It’s beautiful. It’s delicious. It’s another reason to be cheerful.
The final step is opening the doors. Once we’ve churned enough ice cream to fill one of our cases, we will open for business next week. That will be the real cherry on top.
