Friday Recipe: Gelato

It's a hot one here today and what better way to cool down than with homemade gelato. Here's an easy recipe you can whip over the weekend.

2 cups of full cream milk
1 cup of heavy cream
4 egg yolks
1/2 cup of sugar

  • In a medium saucepan, mix milk and cream. Warm until foam forms around the edges. Remove from heat.

  • In a large bowl, beat the egg yolks and sugar until frothy. Gradually pour the warm milk into the egg yolks, whisking constantly. Return mixture to saucepan; cook over medium heat, stirring with a wooden spoon until the mixture gels slightly and coats the back of the spoon. If small egg lumps begin to show, remove from heat immediately.

  • Pour the mixture through a sieve or fine strainer into a bowl. Cover, and chill for several hours or overnight.Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker (or a clean container and stir now and again), and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions. Transfer to a sealed container, and freeze until firm. If the gelato is too firm, place it in the refrigerator until it reaches the desired consistency.
