This is a simple gelato recipe. Gelato makers use about 1.5 cups of liquid plus additional ingredients. For a standard ice cream maker, approximately doubling the recipe should work.
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup half & half
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 + 1/4 cup sugar (any kind will do)
  • Approximately 15 washed and pitted fresh cherries
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 egg yolks
  1. ) Put water, 1/4 cup sugar, and cherries in a small saucepan over high heat until water begins to boil and sugar is dissolved.
  2. ) Turn heat to low, add vanilla. Let cook, stirring intermittently, until cherries have cooked down and liquid has become syrupy. (This can take about 20 minutes)
  3. ) While cherries are cooking, mix milk, half & half, and cream together.
  4. ) Add sugar and eggs and whisk together well.
  5. ) Put milk mixture into gelato maker and begin freezing according to instructions.
  6. ) Put cherries in freezer and wait until cool
  7. ) When milk mixture is halfway hardened, stop freezer and add cherries and syrup from pan.
  8. ) Continue freezing in gelato maker until done.
  9. ) Eat soft or freeze 2 hours or more for scoopable gelato.
