Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking - Strawberry Gelato

59cindy1.JPG

Today's recipe is Strawberry Gelato. I love gelato. While I love ice cream also, gelato usually tastes more intensely of the fresh fruit it's made from. This recipe definately follows that, so be sure and use flavorful, fresh strawberries.

I was really anxious to try this recipe because it only contains 1/4 cup of heavy whipping cream and no eggs. I'm used to making home-made ice cream and using a couple of cups of cream and 1/2 dz or so egg yolks. Not the most healthy thing to eat. This gelato was less rich than a heavy ice-cream, but as I mentioned earlier, it's all about the flavor of strawberries.

For this recipe, you puree strawberries and sugar in a food processor, then add some water and puree more. You then mix this in with lightly whipped heavy cream, and then process in your ice-cream maker. It couldn't get any easier than this! I can't wait to try this with other berries also.
