from {14 Secrets of the Southwest}  -  # 3 Eat Rosemary Ice Cream!

"Tara's Organic >
Tara Esperanza, owner of Tar's Organic in downtown Santa Fe finds inspiration for her Willy Wonka-like ice cream flavors by running into New Mexico's wilds. her latest all-natural treat started with a whiff of trailside rosemary, which she later combined with caramelized pear and allspice. "It's heavenly," she says (we agree.) her ingredients, like her inspiration, are locally sourced: Lavender comes from Los Poblanos out of Albuquerque, and green chilies from the Santa Cruz Farm in Espanola. The effect is transportive. "Try a scoop of sage," says Esperanza. "It's like you're off in the nearby mountains."
