Nuts Gelato

Nuts Gelato (home-made italian ice cream).


Welcome back,

Today I propose a recipe for gelato with nuts.

This is a particular taste, prepared by adding hand-made shredded nut brittle to whipped gelato, hand-made ​​by me, which gives gelato a truly unique flavor!

Unfortunately I can’t give you the right doses to prepare nut brittle since I go,  as they say, …. by eye!

Here are  the ingredients: use sugar, a pinch of salt, a few drops of lemon juice and  butter.

Put everything on low heat in a pan and let caramelize, when ready add the dried fruit, in this case the nuts, and mix well, then, slowly, lay over a sheet of baking paper and let cool to room temperature.

Below is the gelato  recipe  …


 ½ l. of milk
65 gr. of liquid cream
125 gr. of sugar (if  available, replace 50 gr. sugar with dextrose)
15 gr.of  dried  milk
3 gr. of stabilizer
Pinch of salt
80 gr of nut paste
small pieces of nut or nut brittle


Mix all dry ingredients together, then add milk and cream, and,  after mixing well, put everything in a saucepan and heat  up to 85 ° C with the help of a thermometer.

Allow  the emulsion to cool down, then add the nut paste, stirring constantly.

Turn on the gelato maker machine and stir for about 30/40 min. or until you see a well mounted gelato.

At this point add nuts or broken nut brittle and stir for another minute .

Let stand for about 1 hour in the freezer.

I decorated with bits of nut brittle prepared almost at the moment …

Enjoy your gelato!
