Dukkah Honey Doesn’t Disappoint

Dukkah Honey Ice Cream

Rochester’s Public Market is a great place to find local agricultural gems. At the market we bought armfuls of freshly harvested rhubarb from two regional farms: Old Home and Peters Farms.

Strawberry Margarita Sorbet

Straberry Margarita

Spring is finally here (snow flurries be darned!) and as the weather warms up, visions of tropical drinks dance in our heads. We started with beautiful strawberries from Hurd Orchards in Holley, NY, added a burst of lime zest, and a touch of Davis Orange Blossom Honey from Cayuga, NY. Pure agave tequila and Cointreau… Continue reading
