The Saffron Ice Cream Company

The Saffron Ice Cream Company are a small business not to far from me making fantastic ice cream from a little barn in the wilds of North West Essex. I thought I’d do a little shout out for these guys and my local readers! They have a regular slot at the Saffron Walden market on a Saturday and I’ve also seen their ice cream being sold in the Eight Bells pub¬†and also my favourite new tea room, Teacake in Shepreth.

The focus is on mainly locally produced ingredients and seasonal flavours. They have a ‘seasonal flavour chart’ which tells you when the different flavours are produced depending on the time of year, which is such a brilliant idea, I love it. Right now Henham Honey & Lavender and Summer Strawberries & Cream are in season. They also have year round mainstays – Chocolate, Vanilla and Ginger. And even better the ice creams are produced without any horrible preservatives that you can’t pronounce.

If you spot them on your travels I urge you to try them out, they sell little and big tubs at the market, and also at these farm shops in Cambridgeshire.
