Pickled Strawberry Banana Natto Bread

While half of our team had never heard of natto, the other half was bewildered by how to use it in ice cream. Allow us to school you: Natto is a traditional Japanese ingredient of fermented soybeans, and MegumiNATTO right in Sonoma happens to be making the highest-quality, organic natto in the country. Gooey, distinct, and pungent, it kicks our yeasty banana cake up a notch. Meanwhile, we cook strawberries with rice vinegar and yuzu for a pickled compote that pops against the salted ice cream backdrop and sweet, funky cake.
