They’re tart but a little sweet and bake well in a pie – they’re just perfect,” she said. Subscribe One of their more interesting flavors was Toasted Oak, which is a common flavor in Scandinavia.  Klemens uses this as an example of the universality of ice cream and describes the concept as similar to aging wine in oak barrels. Her first store, Mother Moo, in Sierra Madre has been going strong for five seasons. After a few a major setback in 2011, when a windstorm put them out of business for five days, Mother Moo returned to normal production and has been growing ever since. She recently opened Moo on Mission where Buster’s used to be. Klemes has always loved the kitchen arts like gardening and baking but decided to make ice cream after taking a course at Penn State. Klemens likes cold ice cream and uses minimal ingredients to achieve a smooth texture. The vanilla ice cream has only six ingredients and each batch is made in their San Marino store. Mother Moo isn’t just ice cream. They’re also known for their butter crust pies, baked goods, sandwiches, root beer floats and coffee drinks. Klemens plans to add more savory food to the menu so that everyone can find something that strikes their mood. She hopes to create an inclusive family and community space. With special touches like a communal table and outdoor seating, Mother Moo provides a welcoming atmosphere. “Ice cream is a universal food and it makes people happy,” she said. One of her favorite parts of the business is watching her customers grow and keeping up with their lives. Klemens explains that ice cream is a family food and many people bring their children and extended family to Mother Moo. First Heatwave Expected Next Week As part of Mother Moo’s mission statement,  Klemens focuses on sourcing local ingredients from small businesses and farmers. Klemens supports Gravenstein Apple Fair in Sebastopol, a farmer dedicated to preserving the Gravenstein apple. This variety of apple has a short shelf life and is in danger of being replaced by more shelf-stable apples. They are one of the only orchards that still cultivate this apple. [Editor’s Note: This story erroneously stated that Mother Moo’s original location was in San Marino. It was not. It was actually in Sierra Madre. The story as been corrected.] Although Pasadena seems to have perpetual summer, ice cream shop success is still measured by season. Karen Klemens explains that summer is the number one season for ice cream sales but they serve scoops all year long. In fact, she prefers her ice cream in the winter.
