Figs Gelato

Figs Gelato (home-made italian ice cream)

 

Welcome back,

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 …

Ingredients:

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

Procedure:

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.

Enjoy!
