Ice cream is something I like to make and eat. Though I periodically indulge in buying it, in my opinion most of it sucks. Badly stored, often it's with freezer burned. Or the flavors are super sweet and uninteresting.
Fast forward a few weeks back, I bought a gelato maker on e-bay. From the first churns, hiccups and misstep,I finally got some decent flavors and formulas going. Nothing better then using farmer's milk (goat or cow) and seasonal fruits.
Goats milk gelato
Here is an adapted formula from, Tradizione In Evoluzione: arte e scienza in pasticceria, by Leonardo Di Carlo. Which I just replaced regular cows milk with goats milk.
21g glucose (dry powdered)
536ml Milk (Goats milk here!)
100g Egg yolks
140ml Heavy cream
30g Dry milk
Method: Combine and stir the first four ingredients
Whisk sugar yolks, dry milk and guar to combine.
Heat milk just to scald to 40 Celsius-104 Fahrenheit, when the temperature reaches 45 Celsius-113 Fahrenheit; Temper heated milk to the rest of the ingredients and bring to 85 Celsius-185 Fahrenheit, pass through a sieve and chill to +4 Celcius-40 Fahrenheit.
Let sit overnight in fridge and then churn next day.
