It's officially summer in Portland. And it's hot! Hot enough to wait (and wait) in line for one of Salt & Straw's famous ice cream treats.
Salt & Straw is Portland's farm-to-cone ice cream shop. They make 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. They start with fresh, local, all-natural cream from family owned farms in the Willamette Valley. Their ice cream is made with 17% butterfat, very little air in the churn process, and a low sweetness level...so the flavors really shine through!
