Thanksgiving Turkey Ice Cream is Made with 'Turkey Juice'


This Thanksgiving, do dessert first with Portland's Salt & Straw. The renowned ice cream shop, known for past concoctions like ham and blue cheese, rolled out their latest seasonal treats: Salted Caramel Thanksgiving Turkey, Apple Cranberry Stuffing and Mincemeat Pie.

The dessert meals feature turkey juice, caramelized onions, and turkey-skin brittle  infused into a turkey fat-caramel cream base for the Turkey ice cream, while the Stuffing version is made with celery soda and the Mincemeat Pie with brandy soaked fruits. There's also Pumpkin Custard & Spiced Chevre and Sweet Potato & Candied Pecans ice cream on the lineup, for those with more subtle taste buds. The holiday flavors are available online 'til November 29.


For those of the dessert-first mindset, this might be a viable replacement for your traditional Thanksgiving dinner.
