Gelato

Post by ChrisGreaves »

Any of you ever attempted this without an ice-cream maker?
"How to Make Authentic Italian Gelato at Home" has this fascinating prospect:-
Gelato melts faster because it contains less air. Ice cream, on the other hand, melts more slowly thanks to the insulating effect of the air. The law allows it to incorporate air up to 100% of its weight.

Gelato was a favourite after-show desert on nights when we drove in to Adelaide from Gawler. Supper and a movie (or concert), and then, summertime, gelato cones on Rundle Street. (In winter, "floaters" same location)
Cheers, Chris

I’ve been tidying the junk out of my shed for five years, and now can hardly get into the shed

Thanks Hans. Please try it now.

Making gelato at home without an ice-cream maker is definitely possible, although it might require a bit more effort and patience

I find it much easier to go in the car to a nearby farm which makes Gelato from the milk of happy and contented cows*...
