South Enders Expanding Ice Cream Business

Owners Susie Parish and Veronica Janssens

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.  read more

South Enders Celebrate Marriage Equality Anniversary at Public Garden

Ellen Wade of Newton speaks at Thursday's celebration of marriage equality in Massachusetts at the Public Garden Thursday.

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. read more
