There’s a reason that this pint is considered the brand’s signature. Jeni herself crafted the flavor after an apprenticeship with a French chef who always referred to salted caramel as “salty.” This led her to imagine a flavor that went beyond the standard caramel, entering into a realm of saltier and denser possibilities. She started by caramelizing sugar in a kettle over a fire which is actually a rather dangerous and precise method, but produces an unrivaled nutty flavor. Then, it's rounded out with cream and grass-grazed milk to enhance the butteriness of the caramel. We didn't know all the dangerous risks of crafting ice cream, but now appreciate Jeni’s dedication to the craft even more.
