Week of May 31, 2010 – homemade ice cream

Edina Creamery… one of my favorite stops… I don't know why it doesn't make it on more local 'best' lists, it ranks high on mine… silky creamy, Gourmet Magazine has called it the Best Ice Cream in America… fabulous strawberry has both a puree and strawberry chunks, best I have tasted!… taste for yourself at 5055 France Ave S…

Pumphouse Creamery… love this shop that uses all locally produced organic products to create their delicious ice cream… taste is more crystallized that silky creamy, wonderfully fresh… at great 48th & Chicago neighborhood corner… http://bit.ly/an6227

Sebastian Joe's… where I first discovered homemade ice cream shops… and raspberry chocolate chip ice cream years after my favorite sundae was fudge and raspberry…  original shop at 4321 Upton in Linden Hills… http://bit.ly/ck3WNj

Grand Ole Creamery… the first ice cream shop in St. Paul to make its own homemade ice cream… established in 1984, the same year as Sebastian Joe's in Minneapolis… winner of many awards, the line snakes out the door and down the walk on beautiful summer days… get your delicious licks at 750 Grand Ave, St. Paul…

Izzy's… home of the 'Izzy', a small bonus scoop topping your cone for a taste of another flavor… also the only place to get an ice cream casserole! Izzy's Hot Dish has 32 scoops of ice cream on crumbled cones and sprinkled with brownie bits… at 2034 Marshall Ave, St. Paul…

Crema1 Crema Cafe… some of the best ice cream on the planet and home of award winning Sonny's Ice Cream since 1945… everything on the menu (meals & ices) is home made from scratch from local organic ingredients… intimate Italian feel… not to be missed!!!… at 34th & Lyndale in south Minneapolis…
