Photo--Ice cream recipe from teresa_nc's swap box
Ohhh, I've been waiting to try this one! It's from a book teresa_nc included in my wonderful swap box - I made gelato!
Here's a photo, including that darling ice cream scoop Teresa sent. Oh yum!
I made half a recipe so it would fit in my ice cream maker and added maple syrup to make it Maple Gelato, and I modified the recipe a little bit.
Here's the recipe that I'm calling.... Maple Gelato
4 egg yolks
1/2 C sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 C milk (it's supposed to be 3 C milk and no cream, but I worked with what I had and it came out great!)
1 C cream
1 T maple syrup
Beat egg yolks and sugar until light and fluffy looking.
In a sauce pan, heat the milk and cream until little bubbles and foam start showing up around the edges.
Start adding the milk/cream mixture to the egg mixture a little at a time to temper the egg mixture. Stir by hand constantly as you add the hot mixture.
Return the egg/milk mixture to med-low heat and gently heat until mixture coats the back of a spoon. Strain through a sieve or strainer.
Add vanilla and maple syrup and maple flavoring. (I strained it again at this point). Chill over night.
Process as directed on your ice cream maker.
