A month back we offered a Peach Gelato recipe. Well, the recipe is flexible enough that you can substitute strawberries and have another great flavor to enjoy;
2 cups sugar
2 cups water
2 cups lowfat buttermilk
5 cups cut up strawberries
First, early in the day, or the day before, heat the water and sugar until the sugar is completely dissolved. Let cool, and put in fridge to get cold.
Next, mix the strawberries with the sugar-water, buttermilk, in a food processor or blender. Place the mix into an ice cream maker and mix until smooth.
A couple points to note. The particular ice cream maker is sized to only make half this recipe at a time. You can either make the full mix as above for two batches or measure half of the recipe as shown above. Also, this comes out pretty good if you don’t have an ice cream maker by putting into a metal bowl in the freezer and stirring with a fork every half hour or so, more frequently as it starts to solidify. Enjoy.
I think we’ll have one more gelato flavor before the summer comes to a close.
