What a glorious Friday, ladies and gentlemen. The perennial superstar, Sweet Corn & Black Raspberries ice cream, has returned to shops and jenis.com. (We'll begin shipping the flavor to select groceries next week.)
The summertime fave features sweet corn cut from the cob and a made-from-scratch, sweet-tart black raspberry jam that's as gorgeous as it is delicious.
The sweet corn comes to us (500 pounds at a time) from Hirsch Fruit Farm (just south of Columbus), while the bushels of intensely flavorful berries are the product of Champaign Berry Farm (just west of Columbus).
When the corn and berries are hauled into kitchen, the team gets down to labor-intensive business of shucking, chopping, brushing, boiling, and so on. We're putting 60 to 70 ears' worth of freshly creamed sweet corn into each batch of ice cream, and the flavor—one Jeni has made for years—has never been better.
So, what's it taste like? In a word: Summer.
But, you be the judge. Stop by a shop and have a sample, or send yourself (or someone you like a lot) a pint or two.
Until then, here's a look at how we make each batch of Sweet Corn & Black Raspberries.
