This recipe was provided by Alec Jaffe, founder and CEO of Alec’s Ice Cream. Alec’s had a lifelong passion for making ice cream. He began making it as a profession after graduating from college. He was in the supermarket and noticed the lack of organic ice creams made with clean ingredients. All of Alec’s is made in his own ice cream factory in Sonoma County, which is just miles away from the pasture raised dairy farms he sources from.
