So we want to do a little lunchtime survey: What's your favorite summer ice cream flavor? We took a friendly poll among our editors - our picks below the jump. Chris: Cherry Vanilla is my favoite. Sid's Chocolate from Ronnybrook Farms and blood orange gelato are close runners up.
Sara Kate: At an ice cream counter, I'm a sucker for mint chocolate chip. At home, I like ice cream made out of herbs: basil, lemon verbena, whatever's wild in the garden that I can stew with the milk before making the custard. I also like really well-done chocolate ice cream. A friend recently made me ricotta ice cream out of Gourmet that was amazing.
Faith: Salted caramel. Southern lemon buttermilk sherbet. Anything with fruit and chocolate, like Graeter's raspberry chip.
