Melon & Capicola


First Churned August 2011

Rumor has it that one summer night Kim was at a party with friends and drunkenly texted “Melon and prosciutto should be a flavor.” Tyler was game—but it’s hard to top-quality prosciutto. He reached to our friends at Olympia Provisions, who had just finished a sweet coppa. We bought a couple loaves, sliced it as thin as paper, and folded it into cantaloupe ice cream.

This is one of the first ice cream flavors we ever created! We pair ambrosial organic Charentais melon ice cream with paper-thin slices of Olympia Provisions capicola, an incredible cured and slow-roasted ham similar to prosciutto infused with black pepper, fennel seed, coriander, and anise. The spices dance with the sweetness of the cantaloupe-style melon from Full Belly Farms in the Capay Valley for a salty-sweet ice cream experience that’s perfectly balanced and bright.
