By Steph Cha - Beet tarragon gelato at Gelateria Uli: Beets have such nice color it’s kind of a wonder they aren’t more present in ice cream. It’s possible that despite their sweetness, their rooty, earthy flavor doesn’t translate that well into dessert. Well, Uli figured it out. I’m not sure what black magic takes beet and tarragon and makes it wonderful as gelato, but this stuff is both memorable and delicious. 541 S.
