Celebrate Summer With Gelato & Strawberry Sorbet

Posted: Updated:

Summer time means ice cream time!

What better way to cool off?  Maybe you love sorbet?  What about a smooth gelato?

Chef Robert Bennett from Classic Cake shows you how to make homemade gelato and sorbet!

Check out the clip.

Here are the recipes!

Gelato

2 c. low fat or non-fat milk

1 c. sugar

1/4 c. non-fat dry milk

8 egg yolks

1 c. half-and-half

1 tsp. vanilla extract  

Bring the milk, non-fat dry milk, and half of the sugar to a boil. Whip the remaining sugar with the yolks. Slowly stream the hot mixture into the sugar/yolk mixture. Return to heat and stir constantly over a medium heat. When the mixture thickens, immediately remove from the heat and strain into a chilled bowl. Add the half-and-half and vanilla. Place in a pre-chilled ice cream machine, and churn according to manufacturer's suggestion.

Strawberry Sorbet

4 pts. Strawberries cleaned and stemmed

1 pt. (approx.) Simple syrup (1:1 sugar: water) (The strawberries vary in sweetness)

Combine the strawberries and syrup, process in a blender. The mixture should be slightly sweeter in the puree form in order to get a smooth product when frozen. Add more syrup if necessary. Taste buds do not detect extra sweetness in a frozen product, but the sugar ensures a smooth product. Not enough sugar produces an icy consistency. Even less = water ice. Freeze in an ice cream machine according to the manufacturer's instructions.
