Salt on Ice Cream?

We are thankful to have been invited to participate in the 2009 Taste of the Hawaiian Range and thankful for the overwhelming compliments from all of you who visited our booth to take part in our tasting. What a spectacular event for showcasing the best in Big Island agriculture, farming and ranching.

For those of you who missed the Kona Sea Salt experience, it was incredible. Kona Sea Salt featured two items to showcase the distinct difference Kona Sea Salt makes on food flavors.

The first tasting included freshly made tortilla chips dusted with Kona Sea Salt and a signature guacamole dish from Hole Guacamole using all fresh Hawaii Island ingredients including Kona Sea Salt. Local chefs and self-proclaimed “guac experts” were all impressed!

Next was a mouth watering dessert combination of Tropical Dreams’ Kona Coffee ice cream with a fresh grind of Kona Sea Salt on top, then draped with a warm chocolate ganache from the Original Hawaiian Chocolate Company and topped with a fresh macadamia nut from Kona Coast Macadamia Nut and Candy Factory . Wow! The “salt on ice cream” skeptics instantly became fans.
