 Oh La La!   I remember the first time I tried some organic salted caramel ice cream.  I was at a fine dining restaurant and a server highly recommended the salted caramel ice cream.   How strange, I thought…who would want salt and caramel together.  But I alway go with the servers recommendation and ordered it.  It was absolutely fantastic!   The sweet and salty worked so perfectly with the creamy ice cream.  Such a perfect combination of flavors, I…
