I don't usually share news and updates about Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams just because their own blog is so incredible. The high quality pictures and amount of work their farm to table style ice cream requires makes their blog one of the best around when we're talking ice cream. Earlier today, they posted the story of exactly how their Loveless Biscuits + Peach Jam flavor is made and it was just too beautiful not to reblog. This is simply copy and pasted from the original article posted by Aaron Beck. Enjoy the ice cream eye candy!
"There’s a sweet little roadside joint on Tennessee Highway 100 in Nashville called the Loveless Cafe. Inside, you’ll find an array of memorable southern fare—red-eye gravy, BBQ pork omelets, country fried steak. But there’s one item that everyone remembers long after their visit: Loveless’ heavenly little angel biscuits. From where we stand, Loveless’ biscuits are one of the Seven Wonders of the Food World. Flaky, light, buttery, and just salty enough, the biscuits have inspired our newest addition to the menu: Loveless Biscuits + Peach Jam.
Now, we tried to sweet-talk the biscuit recipe out of the folks at Loveless, but they wouldn’t budge. So, with their kind blessing we used their biscuits (and jam) as our muse and created our own. Just as some movie soundtrack songs are “inspired by” the film, our biscuits (and peach jam) are inspired by Loveless’ heavenly little masterworks.
Loveless Biscuits + Peach Jam is now available at all of our scoop shops and at jenis.com. Beginning early next week (when a new Jeni’s freezer arrives at Loveless), pints will be available at the Loveless Cafe.
So, what’s it taste like? It’s rich and aromatic and it screams summertime flavor. It’s a mouthwatering blend of buttermilk and grass-grazed Southern Ohio cream, with crumbles of our very fluffy yeast-raised biscuits folded in, and swirls of sweet-tart, schnapps-spiked peach jam all throughout. (Peaches: courtesy of the great Peach Truck in Nashville.)
Here’s how we do it:
Prepping the biscuits, removing the fluffy, yeast-raised biscuits from the oven.
The biscuits and cut and crumbled, before being added to the buttermilk and grass-grazed ice cream.
Heaven on Earth.
The Peach Truck’s Georgia peaches ripening on the tree, before the harvest. We get our peaches for the jam we make from Stephen and Jessica Rose, the wonderful people who operate the Peach Truck in Nashville. The Roses grow their peaches on Stephen’s aunt and uncle’s 130-year-old peach and pecan farm.

An ice cream that positively sings: Loveless Biscuits + Peach Jam. Available now for a limited time in pints and scoops in our shops and at jenis.com, and beginning next week in pints at the Loveless Cafe."
