Homemade gelatos are the best and my cranberry and eggnog gelato are perfect for the holiday season.
Each recipe will make a little more than a quart of homemade gelato, and depending upon how you serve it could be for 1 person or up to 6.
If you’ve never made ice cream or gelato, you really don’t know what your missing. To me, the big difference in gelato is the use of mostly milk instead of heavy cream. I do use some heavy cream to help with the consistency, but if you use too much heavy cream it becomes too heavy and instead of the intense flavors of the main ingredient, the cream and the sugar become the star of the show.
A gelato maker does not put as much air into the finished product as does an ice cream maker and this helps intensify the flavors. You will find gelato recipes that call for a custard don’t seem as flavorful as the easy version. What could be easier than mixing up your ingredients and in just a few minutes? After that, the machine does all the work.
