South Enders Expanding Ice Cream Business

Two South Enders are expanding their all natural ice cream company all the way to the South Shore this summer.  Batch ice cream, crafted from scratch in Massachusetts using real local ingredients, is owned by Susie Parish and Veronica Janssens, both of the South End.  All seven-batch ice cream flavors contain a small list of ingredients, like fresh cream, organic evaporated cane juice, and eggs, brought together with hand-crafted caramel and real vanilla beans. Paris and Janssens get their chocolate from Dean’s Beans in Orange, Mass., their salt from Maine Sea Salt Co., their tea-flavors from Somerville, their fresh milk and cream from New England dairies, and their imported ingredients, like coffee, chocolate, and cane sugar, are sourced from Fair Trade. “We’re all about being local and sourcing locally,” Parish said. The owners do not use lab-developed additives and stabilizers like gums, artificial flavors and colors, corn syrup and dairy with added hormones.  “There’s no additives, it’s really just simple ingredients for each of our flavors.” Parish said. Batch was first crafted in 2010 in Attleboro and is now available in 150 stores across the state, including at three places in the South End:  South End Food Emporium – 465 Columbus Ave. Foodies Urban Market – 1421 Washington St. Georgiana’s – 532 Tremont St.  All of the locations are located on the company’s website. This summer, Batch will spread their ice cream business further by hitting the South Shore in a promotional ice cream truck. They will be offering samples at the South Shore Art Festival in Cohasset on June 15, the Pooch-a-Palooza in Canton on June 22 and Father Bill’s & Mainspring Food Fest and Auction at the Marina Bay Club in Quincy on July 30.

South Enders Celebrate Marriage Equality Anniversary at Public Garden

Dozens of local gay and lesbian couples gathered at the Boston Public Garden Thursday to celebrate the 9th anniversary of the law that gave them the right to marry in Massachusetts. The celebration, put on in partnership between Gay & Lesbian Advocates and Defenders (GLAD), the Respect for Marriage Coalition and Mayor Thomas Menino, ended with a group photo at a location popular for wedding photography. Michael Kelley and Ricardo Rodriguez of the South End were on hand Thursday. Kelley said that before marriage equality was in place, people referred to himself and Rodriguez as “friends, boyfriends, that friend, partner,” but that all changed when they were wed. “That is exactly the power of marriage,” Kelley said. “It’s been an extraordinary five years,” said Ellen Wade of Newton, who along with her wife, Maureen Brodoff, were one of the plaintiffs in the landmark case they won in 2003 that led to the adoption of marriage equality in the state. “It’s been exciting and inspiring, and we’re grateful to have played a small part in showing the country what marriage equality looks like,” Wade said, and in gesturing to the crowd, added, “it looks like us.” Bette Jo Green and Jo Ann Whitehead of Jamaica Plain have been together for over 32 years and both have battled cancer. But because of the Defense of Marriage Act, they worry about their financial future. “If Bette were to predecease me, I would not get the Social Security Spousal Benefits that other married couples are able to have,” Whitehead said. “We’re very hopeful the Supreme Court will strike down DOMA and there will be equality for all under the law.” Menino was unable to attend the ceremony, but in a statement read by Jullieanne Doherty from his office, he said it was an important anniversary for the city, state and nation. “Nine years ago was one of my proudest days as mayor of Boston,” Doherty read from Menino’s statement.
