Welcome back , like every year we celebrated the 3rd European Gelato Day .
For this occasion ” Chocolate of Austria “( ie chocolate varied with apricot jam) has been chosen and that has been sold at € 1 by participating ice-cream parlours.
For those who would want to do it at home , here is my personal recipe …
½ l. of milk
50 gr. of cocoa (for a more intense flavor replace 20 gr. with dark chocolate)
40 gr. of liquid cream
2 tablespoons of sugar
15 gr. of milk powder
3 gr. of stabilizer
Pinch of salt
1 egg yolk (optional)
150 gr. apricot jam
Some apricot syrup
Mix all dry ingredients together, then add the egg yolk while continuing to stir.
Finally add all the liquids 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 turn on the gelato maker machine , pour in the mixture and stir for about 30/40 min. or until you see a well mounted gelato.
At the end of creaming, gradually add the jam while the blades are spinning, then let stand for 1 hour in the freezer.
Compose each cup with ice cream and some apricot syrup.
Happy Gelato Day to all !!!
