Strawberry Gelato

Fat Al Johnson 0

"This recipe is perfect for 1.5-quart ice cream makers. It's easy to make and tastes great. Making gelato takes some trial and error to figure out the custard bases, flavors, and the quirks of your ice cream maker. Once you conquer the technique you won't believe what you can do."

  1. Beat milk, sugar, egg yolks, and vanilla with a wire whisk in a saucepan; cook and stir over medium heat until beginning to thicken, about 5 minutes.

  3. Chill in refrigerator until completely cool.
  4. Freeze in canister of ice cream maker according to manufacturer instructions.

I will not be using this recipe again. I have been making homemade ice cream for a long time and this is the first time I have ever failed to get a consumable product.

Tried 2 times. Never thickened. Curdled both times.
