Back on my gelato kick for a day – more on why only a day sometime next week. I was finishing up some dulce de leche, had too much milk left over when we were in Hawaii and a lot of sugar, I did the long slow cook to reduce them and essentially get a milk caramel. Wasn’t able to cook it quite long enough over there so I put it into a ziplock and brought it home to finish it. Dave said we needed ice cream to go with it. Since I didn’t feel like making a custard base for ice cream, I decided on trying a simple vanilla gelato. I could not find the kind of recipe I wanted but tonight I felt up to experimenting. I took 1 cup of white corn syrup, 2 tsp of vanilla, 1 ¼ cups of heavy cream, ¾ cup of milk, and a pinch of salt. Whisked that all together and froze it in my machine. It came out with a wonderful texture, more like a soft-serve ice cream, so I guess I can’t call it gelato. But I’ll be making this again!
