The Hoe-Down About Hootenanny

Harvest Hootenanny banner

This Saturday, October 3 marks the start of South Wedge's second annual Hootenanny, but, what in the darn tootin' is a hootenanny? Simply put, a party!

Dukkah Honey Doesn’t Disappoint

Dukkah Honey Ice Cream

We may be experiencing the last throes of summer here, in Rochester, but it's always summer in Saharan Egypt, the home of the Dukkah spice mix that forms the base of our latest limited edition flavor. Traditionally, Dukkah was a staple among the Egyptian peasantry. After coarsely grinding up whatever nuts were on hand with… Continue reading

Veritably Vanilla Bean

Vanilla Ice Cream

Exotic and adventurous ice creams, like our Earl Grey Chocolate (featured as a limited edition flavor just earlier this week), aren't for everyone. Oftentimes our customers walk in and just want something simple, and what is more classic and wholly satisfying than a well-executed vanilla? But, surprisingly, vanilla ice cream isn't as straightforward as it seems. This… Continue reading

Booze in Sorbet

A well-crafted cocktail is only second to a dish of artisan sorbet (and maybe a truffle too). But sometimes, two worlds collide, and what you get is the best of both. Our newly crafted Blackcurrant Sorbet is sultry purple in color and packs a powerful, tart punch. But, there's something that gives it an extra flavor… Continue reading

Behind the Counter: Flavor Inspiration

Carrot Cake Ice Cream, as created by head chocolatier Joya Wade.

Have you ever wondered how we come up with unique flavors or how we always find something different to create? Our chocolatiers Joya Wade and Janiqwa Campbell recently expressed their flavor inspiration process when making our delicious ice cream and sorbet. Joya takes advantage of ice cream as a blank canvas, as it’s so good… Continue reading

Brown Sugar Pecan Makes a Sweet Return!

Brown Sugar Pecan Ice Cream

Brown Sugar Pecan is back on the flavor board! We caramelize brown sugar and incorporate it right into the ice cream. The sweet and salty pecans add a layer of crunch that completes this limited edition flavor. It's so pretty on the surface that we almost don't want to break into it for that first… Continue reading

Black Sesame Miso with Caramel

Black Sesame Miso Caramel

We're excited to introduce another bold flavor, Black Sesame Miso with Caramel! It sounds intimidating, we know. Miso isn't just for soup. Not sure what miso is? It is a traditional Japanese seasoning that produces a salty and earthy flavor. Add that with black sesame seeds and swirls of our famous caramel -- delish! If… Continue reading

Winter Peach Ice Cream

Winter Peach Ice Cream

Who says winter isn't ice cream season? Our Winter Peach combines sweet and subtle peach notes with aromatic spices like fennel and white pepper to create an ice cream that positively sparkles with flavor. Meant to evoke a peach pie, the Winter Peach is crisp and bright, but warm enough to be part of any… Continue reading

Olive Oil & Honey Ice Cream

Olive Oil & Honey

Foods cooked with oil are traditional treats for Hanukkah, so we've made our Olive Oil & Honey Ice Cream to celebrate the Festival of Light. We start, as always, with Pittsford Farms Dairy, into which we've blended sustainably grown California olive oil and a touch of Seneca Lake salt. The finished ice cream is laced… Continue reading

Concord Grape Sorbet

Concord Grape Sorbet

Concord grapes are one of the jewels of upstate New York's agricultural crown; they fill the early autumn hills with their redolent aroma. We crafted our sorbet from grapes we got from Fisher Hill Farms in Canandaigua. Laced with summer blossom honey from Doan Honey farms in Cayuga and a splash of brandy, this floral… Continue reading
