From Leora Stein & Ruby Jewel
Some delicious news for you! Ruby Jewel will be debuting four new handcrafted ice cream sandwiches featuring ingredients sourced from local farms and food producers on May 11 at the Portland State University Portland Farmers Market. Though you can find Ruby Jewel ice cream sandwiches in grocery stores from Alaska to Los Angeles, these new flavors will be available exclusively at the PSU Market in celebration of our 8th year as a vendor, where Ruby Jewel sold its first treats in 2005. Each ice cream sandwich is handcrafted daily in Ruby Jewel’s North Portland production kitchen using milk and cream from Lochmead Dairy in Junction City, Oregon and freshly baked cookies by pastry chef Leila Ellis of Marushka Chocolates.
Here’s what you can look forward to!
– Crunchy, molasses-y graham crackers and earthy candied multicolored carrot ice cream using carrots from Prairie Creek Farm in Joseph, Oregon.
– Our cows milk ice cream base with a swirl of Portland Creamery Chevre and strawberry rhubarb jam (local strawberries from Viridian Farms and rhubarb from Sun Gold Farm) between two chewy brown sugar cookies.
– Toasted banana and Northwest honey ice cream with nutty butterscotch pecan cookies.
– Rich malted chocolate cookies and milk chocolate ice cream sprinkled with chunks of Bees & Beans milk chocolate malt candy bar.
