Strawberry Gelato

Fat Al Johnson 0

"This recipe is perfect for 1.5-quart ice cream makers. It's easy to make and tastes great. Making gelato takes some trial and error to figure out the custard bases, flavors, and the quirks of your ice cream maker. Once you conquer the technique you won't believe what you can do."

  1. Beat milk, sugar, egg yolks, and vanilla with a wire whisk in a saucepan; cook and stir over medium heat until beginning to thicken, about 5 minutes.
  2. Fold the strawberries into the thickening mixture. Whisk until the strawberries soften enough to nearly dissolve into the liquid. Continue cooking until nearing a boil and thick enough for a thin layer to cling to a spoon dipped into it, about 5 minutes.
  3. Chill in refrigerator until completely cool.
  4. Freeze in canister of ice cream maker according to manufacturer instructions.

I really hate to rate recipes low, especially newer ones. However, this wasted A LOT of ingredients, because it didn't work for me at all. I cooked the custard on medium as suggested. I was worr...

The lack of cream in this recipe makes it lower fat but also incredibly fiddly. Gelato should have *some* cream in it, and this doesn't. Because of the lack of cream, it's absolutely essential...

I will not be using this recipe again. I have been making homemade ice cream for a long time and this is the first time I have ever failed to get a consumable product.

Tried 2 times. Never thickened. Curdled both times.
