Its hot weather now – good times for gelato, and tomatoes are here. This coming Saturday is the Carrboro Farmers’ Market tomato fest – the biggest attraction of the year!. But – what sort of gelato goes well with tomatoes? Basil-Pesto, probably. Hard to think of anything else.
Last year we gave a black pepper gelato a try – and donated a bunch to the Tomato Day Celebration. It was quite a hit, actually. We didn’t think past the donation part, and were empty-handed when people came by our booth to buy some. This year – we’re better prepared, and will have pints of “Confetti Gelato” for customers to buy.
Our Confetti Chèvre is made using a blend of black, pink, white, and green peppercorns. So to for the Confetti Gelato. It has a nice bite to contrast with the gelato’s inherent sweetness, and goes surprisingly well with the acidity of the tomatoes.
We’ve even made a special label for it!
