Ancient Heritage’s Lemon Curd & Whey

We love our relationship with Southeast Portland’s urban cheesemaker Ancient Heritage, so we are excited to work with them to create a market for one of the byproducts of cheesemaking: whey. A play on the childhood rhyme, our version of curds and whey makes the most of whey’s tart, almost citrus-like qualities in a salted whey “lemonade” ice cream with gobs of lemon curd (which in a delightful swap, we replace most of the lemon with whey). When you can make ice cream like this, we can’t imagine why anyone would want to throw it “awhey!”
