during summer fig is one of my absolute favorite fruits; eaten either in purity or as a starter with ham, it’s food that must always be present in my larder.
Despite this , I ate fig gelato (ice cream) only once in a gelato parlor …
Yesterday , at the vegetable market, I found some figs “dottati” from Puglia (southern Italy) region, little ones but bursting with flavor, and I thought to prepare a gelato… fantastic!
If you want to try this recipe, just a recommendation: use ripe and full of flavor fruit, otherwise you can’t expect a taste rich gelato (ice cream).
Below is the recipe …
400 gr. of peeled ripe figs
120 gr. of sugar
200 ml. of milk
100 ml. of cream
10 gr. of milk powder
4 gr. of stabilizer
Measure milk and cream, then pour sugar and figs into pieces then blend well in a blender.
If you do not want to see or eat the seeds, you can strain through a sieve, but it is not essential.
Add the stabilizer and mix again, then put the mixture in the gelato maker machine and stir for about 30/40 min. or until you see the well mounted gelato.
Let stand for about 1 hour in the freezer.
