We spotted this ice cream serving idea at Salty Caramel, the official Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams blog. We really like this idea: Slice a pint of ice cream! You know we are all huge fans of Jeni's ice cream (it's based in Columbus, Ohio). She makes wonderful seasonal flavors and deliciously unusual things like this Influenza Sorbet. We especially like this sweet corn and black raspberry flavor that just came out for the season, and we really like this idea of serving ice cream in slices.
Jeni says you can just dump out a pint and slice it and serve. It's a little more elegant than scoops, and you can lay the slices flat on a plate with a fresh sauce or berries.
