Thanksgiving means a table full of roast turkey, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce and, depending on who your grandmother is, sweet potatoes with or without burned marshmallows on top. Ice cream may be the last thing on your holiday menu, unless you're the folks at Salt & Straw ice cream.
The Larchmont Boulevard ice cream shop has some very special flavors for every course of your Thanksgiving meal. And, yes, they involve cranberry, pumpkin, and even turkey.
For those who love sweet potato casserole, Salt & Sraw has a flavor with sweet potato ice cream, Vermont maple-infused marshmallow pillows and pralined pecans.
A honey bourbon corn pudding flavor incorporates housemade corn pudding and bourbon from Ascendant Distillery in Santa Barbara; and a cranberry walnut stuffing flavor has cranberries, walnuts and molasses-brown bread ice cream.
For those daring enough to try a little turkey with their ice cream, there's a salted caramel Thanksgiving turkey ice cream made with turkey fat and caramel ice cream speckled with hand-made fried turkey skin brittle.
For dessert, there's even a spiced chevre pumpkin pie flavor with pumpkin cheesecake ice cream made with goat cheese from Soledad goats in Mojave.
The Thanksgiving flavors are available through the end of the month. And when you buy a pint of any of the Thanksgiving flavors, Salt & Straw will donate a pint to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.
