Yesterday I tried this combination I had in mind for a while to delight some friends I invited for dinner.
The only precaution is to prepare caramelized figs and then let them cool for a moment, because otherwise gelato (ice cream) will melt quickly!
The combination of warm caramel with cold gelato ( ice cream) is excellent, try it!
½ l. of milk
65 gr. of liquid cream
125 gr. of sugar (if available replace 50 gr. of sucrose with dextrose)
15 gr. of milk powder
3 gr. of stabilizer
Pinch of salt
Mix all dry ingredients together and start 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 .
Place sugar and figs cut into wedges in a saucepan over medium heat to caramelize, then add honey and crushed walnut kernels.
Take a nice cup and place some spoonfuls of caramelized figs and walnuts with honey at the bottom .
Add 3 scoops of gelato (ice cream) and garnish with the same sauce.
Enjoy it before it melts!
