But- I thought gelato did not used much dairy....? Perhaps there are as many different methods and recipes with gelato - as there are other frozen dessert?
I suppose I should try to make some gelato....!
This is both my gelato and creme Anglais recipe 500 mls semi skimmed milk,150 grms sugar,4 egg yolks and 1 tsp of Vanilla extract.
My kid brother bought me a Gaggia Gelatteria for a birthday present and any mix you run through it comes out smooth and creamy.
The difference between US icecream recipes and Italian seems to be the fat and sugar content.
Ps my Gaggia was locked away by my wife
PPS the fat content of milk interests me,I use skimmed milk for my macchiato or cappuccino coffee as it gives a denser and more creamy foam.
