If you’re shvitzing in all this summer heat, reach for an ice cream with some chutzpah: Chozen Ice Cream. Created by Manhattanite Ronne Fisher and her two daughters, Chozen is an all-natural ice cream inspired by the sweets and desserts of their favorite Jewish holidays. There’s cinnamon ice cream with homemade raisin walnut rugelach, or there’s the Matzoh Crunch: vanilla ice cream with chocolate and caramel coated matzoh sprinkled with kosher salt. Coconut macaroon, chocolate babka, and apples and honey are also on Chozen’s list of artisanal ice cream sweets. All ingredients are sourced from local dairy farms and ‘authentic Brooklyn bakers’. Now, that’s kosher.
