Gelato is cold, creamy and melts in your mouth. Its like ice cream but has less butter fat. You can find it a Walmart for about $4.42. A basic recipe for Gelato is:
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup half-and-half
Dash fine salt
Whole spices and/or fresh herbs, for steeping
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
6 large egg yolks
Assorted mix-ins, such as candy and/or nuts
Whisk the sugar, vanilla and egg yolksin a medium bowl. Gradually strain in and whisk about half of the warm milk mixture into the eggs. Then, while whisking constantly, add the warmed eggs to the remaining milk mixture.
Return to the heat and cook the gelato base, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until thick and it coats a spoon, about 10 minutes. Transfer the mixture into a bowl set over an ice bath to stop the cooking and bring down the temperature.
Fold in desired mix-ins once the gelato has finished spinning in the machine.Transfer to a container and freeze until solid and ready to serve.
