Fresh ricotta. Crusty crumbs of seeded toast. Juicy, sweet-tart jam of strawberry, raspberry, and a hint of geranium for a bright aroma.
Jeni has become known for her toast and jam ice creams, earning serious street cred during her early days at the North Market for many iterations of toasted brioche and jam ice creams. Think of Ricotta Toast with Red Berry Geranium Jam as the next generation. It’s inspired by what Jeni loves to make at home. A thin piece of seeded bread. Homemade ricotta left over from the night before. Quick jam made with whatever berries are on hand. Crunchy, creamy, tart. It’s so satisfying. And so is this ice cream. But what takes it beyond is a touch of geranium, which adds a fragrant dimension to the berries and a sharp contrast to cool cream.
