It’s officially our (second) favorite season. Fall. Foliage. Fright fests. We get really into it, forgive us! 
You always knew we were crafty, now we’re getting witchcrafty.  This month we’re getting mystical, going magical, and making some ‘scream perfect for pairing with your Halloween haunts.
First we turn to our book of spells for some black magic for our dark and dastardly flavor #115, Blackstrap Magic. Then we grabbed our broom sticks and our cauldrons and got cooking our annual grape pints,  flavor #116, Witches’ Brew.

The making of MilkMade flavor #114. Crummy Plumbrown sugar ice cream with baked plum crumble
Step 3. Cobblers, and crisps, and crumbles - OH MY! Do you know the difference between these three pies? Yeah, there’s really not much difference. There are buckles, brown betty’s, grunts, and slumps too! Looks like someone went wild with vernacular for baked fruit with a sugar and flour topping. Whatever way you call it - it’s delicious. And we made our own to heap into each of our Crummy Plum pints!

Step 2. By now you might well know that we like to source our ingredients locally (and our favorite market is the Union Square Market). Of course on one of our more recent trips to the Greenmarket, we stumbled upon some beautiful plums from Locust Grove Fruit Farm, and knew we had to snatch them up before their season ended. Established in 1820, Locust Grove is a 7th generation family farm. You gotta trust guys that have been in the game that long!
Just look at those beauts! They were made for cooking.

Step 1. Brown sugar, and spice … and everything nice! What better way to build a pint than to start with a base like this.

Flavor of the Month: Flavor #114. Crummy Plumbrown sugar ice cream with fresh sliced plums
Don’t let the name fool you, there’s nothing “crummy” about this pint.  Except for the crummy plum crumble that we mixed in to our sweet, soft, brown sugar ‘scream. That’s right, we took our favorite end-of-summer, it’s-not-quite-pie-season-so-let’s-call-it-a-crumble delicacy, a plum crumble, and recreated it in ice cream form. You know how we do. A pie is made for sharing. A crummy pint, on the other hand…

The making of MilkMade flavor #113. Chai Lattechai-flavored ice cream
Step 1. What exactly is Chai, you ask? Well simple — it’s just black tea with spices. We took inspiration from our favorite fall indulgence, the Chai Latte from the MUD truck, and crafted up a ‘scream of sweet proportions. Ours has cinnamon, cardamom, clove, ginger and nutmeg.

Flavor of the Month: Flavor #113. Chai Lattechai-flavored ice cream
It’s the season to enjoy a latte on our daily walk to the kitchen. We’re keen on (okay addicted to) MUD’s Chai Latte, so we decided to recreate that orange cup of awesome into a pint. In fact, we went so far as to source the exact chai blend they use. (Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery after all!) Like the latte, our ‘scream is silky and smoothe, yet spicy and sweet. Not ready for cups of warmth - just order yours chiled (or frozen, in our case).

And summer’s lease hath all too short a date…
Well it happened. We all knew it would. We tried what we could to stop it. But it happened. Labor Day. The end of summer. 
Shadows will soon grow longer, days will grow shorter. And we Milkmaids will work harder to churn out more ‘scream.  Yes, this summer was awesome, but worry not, we’re gonna make this Fall season even better. Starting with everything nice — some brown sugar and spice, with flavors 113 and 114, Chai Latte and Crummy Plum.

Flavor of the Month: Flavor #111. Coney Island Crunchmalted vanilla pilsner ice cream with a caramel swirl and bits of pretzels
It’s time for that annual trip to Coney Island! If you haven’t taken a ride (or two, or three) on the Cyclone this summer, we’re taking you there with our pints. Then we’re hitting the Sideshows by the Seashore, playing a game of Shoot the Freak on the boardwalk, grabbing a dog at Nathan’s, and of course, chilling out with an ice cold Coney Island Mermaid Pilsner. To celebrate this annual summer excursion, we present Coney Island Crunch — made with malted vanilla, real Coney Island Pilsner a caramel swirl, and pretzels.

We’re back and cooler than ever.
You didn’t think we’d leave you sweltering in the August heat without some ice cream to chill out, did you? 
As you may know, we took a little summer break. But it was no vacation - we were hard at working planning for milkmade 2.0 (or 3.0 or 4.0? who knows at this point!)
But we DID take a few days here and there to explore the city and hit the beach — all in the name of ice cream R&D we assure you! Based on our favorite summer-in-NYC adventures, we crafted two beach-inspired flavors: Coney Island Crunch and The Orchard. Hope they inspire you to get out there and live it up with what remains of summer!
