Here follows a recipe for gelato cream, my dad’s favourite…
Custard was the first cake I cooked when I was young.
It ‘s nice to remember that, although I was not tall enough to reach the kitchen stove, I was doing something that appeared to me a rather a difficult matter!
½ l. milk
65 gr. of cream
125 gr. sugar (if available, replace 50 gr. of sugar with dextrose)
15 gr. of milk powder
3 gr. of stabilizer
Pinch of salt
One vanilla pod
4 egg yolks
½ (grated) lemon
Mix all dry ingredients together, then add the egg yolks while keeping on stirring.
Add all liquids and, after a good mixing, pour everything in a saucepan adding one vanilla pod (cut length wise with a paring knife) and finally bring the mix up to 85 ° C (pasteurization) with the help of a thermometer.
Allow the emulsion to cool down.
Turn the ice cream maker , add the emulsion and let stir for about 30/40 min.
Let stand in the freezer for about 1 hour .
Enjoy your gelato!
