Strawberry Gelato 士多啤梨雪糕

What is the difference between ice cream and gelato? I guess it depends on who you ask! For a kid, it makes no difference at all. In a hot summer day, who cares?

Makes 1 quart

Ingredients for the base:

2 cups whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
4 large egg yolks
½ cup sugar

1)  In a sauce pan, heat milk and cream using medium heat until small bubbles start to form around the edges (or until it reaches 170F).
2)  Whisk egg yolks and sugar in a separate bowl until it is well incorporated.
3)  Temper the yolks by slowly pouring the hot milk mixture while whisking constantly.
4)  Return the custard to the pan and place over low heat. Stir with a wooden spoon until it is thick enough to coat the back of the spoon (or until it reaches 185F). Do not let it boil. It should take no longer than one or two minutes.
5)  Let it cool completely and refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight.

Strawberry Gelato

use the base from above
1 pound strawberries, hulled and thinly sliced
1/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp lemon juice

1)  Place the sliced strawberries in a sauce pan. Sprinkle the sugar and lemon juice on top and toss until the sugar is dissolved and let it sit for 15 minutes.

2)  Cook the strawberries under medium-low heat until they are softened and the syrup starts to thicken, which is about 10 minutes. Let it cool and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.

3)  In a blender or food processor, put half of the base and 3/4 of the strawberries and syrup. Blend until fully incorporated. Whisk into the remaining base.
4)  Pour the mixture into the ice cream machine and churn according to the manufacturer's instruction. Add the remaining strawberries 5 minutes before the churning time is up. Transfer to an air tight container and freeze for at least 2 hours before serving.
