Superlative Ice Cream

Whoever it was that posted about the ice cream now
offered by the Egg Farm Diary: thank you, thank you and
thank you. That finally got me to pay them a visit and
it was wonderful. We tasted a bunch of cheeses and
selected 3 for our picnic before Shakespeare at
Boscobel last Sat. Then we got started on the ice
cream. The only disappointment was that they were out
of pink grapefruit sorbet - it was incredibly
grapefruity - all the best parts of a good, sweet (but
not overly) grapefruit. We wound up getting 4 pints
for 9 people and it was probably the most fun of all
the stuff at the picnic - everyone got into the tasting
act! The buckwheat honey is creamy and good, but has a
wonderfully pronounced honey flavor. The ginger had
just enough bite to it. The strawberry-rhubarb sorbet
was the most liquidy of all, but everyone drank it with
relish, and the deep chocolate did indeed have a deep,
rich flavor and that feeling on your tongue that only a
good Dutch-process cocoa can give. We will all go
back to try more flavors.
