Four Ounces of Heaven
26 October 2008
Thanks to cousin Jami, a new frozen treat has entered my life. It’s called Brazos Supreme Ice Cream and it’s fresh goat milk ice cream produced by Wateroak Farm (Texas) from fresh dairy. There are three base flavors, vanilla, chocolate and coffee from which are derived the 50 or so flavors.
Today at Fresh Plus
, my neighborhood grocery store, it seemed like there were no duplicates among the dozens of 4 oz. ice cream containers in stock. There was Eggnog, Java Jolt, Cafe Vienna, Mocha Almond Fudge, Butter Rum, Key Lime Pie, Peanut Butter, Lemon Blueberry, Vanilla, Creme de Menthe, Cherry Walnut, Snickerdoodle, etc.
I tried Caramel Pecan Coffee and Mint Chocolate Chip….mmmmmmm!
In Austin, most upscale and specialty grocery stores sell this ice cream. I have bought it at Whole Foods and Farm to Market Grocery
. It also may be available at some Whole Foods outside of Austin.
A couple years ago Jessica and I took a road trip to the family-owned Pure Luck Farm
and Dairy. They sell my absolute favorite goat cheese and one that is used by many local restaurants as well. Their award-winning cheeses are wonderful and it was great to see the operation in person. I even got to milk one of the does which was really fun!
