Last summer our ice cream chefs took some time off from recipe testing, baking, steeping and spinning to visit Dave Alberg and his cherry trees in Royal City, Washington. We learned so much about these delectable, juicy berries, all the things that make them taste so good in our ice cream. 🍦🍒
One of our favorite fun facts is how Dave uses ski polls to get the job done. “I use this little ski poll to snag the branch and pull it down,” Dave says. “Then you can just pull the cherries off.” Simple but innovative, just another reason we love getting our cherries from him!
