Vanilla Gelato with Summer Strawberries, Freeze Dried Raspberries, Olive Oil Meyer Lemon Sponge and Garden flowers
- 8 cups whole milk
- 2 cups cream
- 3 cups sugar
- 4tbsp cornstarch
- 1tsp kosher salt
- 2 vanilla beans (users choice)*
Split and scrape the beans, reserve the seed pods to make vanilla sugar or submerge with some alcohol and start aging for extract (other beans will be needed). You could also substitute 3-6 tsp Ground Bourbon Vanilla Bean or email us for some Tahitian Vanilla powder. We keep small stocks;). Add all ingredients except cornstarch to a pot and bring to simmer. Once simmering, add cornstarch slurry and let thicken until nappe (the liquid evenly coats the back of a spoon). Once thickened, strain through chinios or fine mesh strainer, chill and reserve. Once the liquid has cooled, spin in ice cream machine to desired consistency and enjoy.
*We recommend the French Polynesian Vanilla for its soft floral tones and hints of cherry or Ugandan Vanilla Beans for its rich creamy and butteriness.
