Donna’s Strawberry Gelato

It’s been a long time that I did not able to update this blog since my Aunt borrowed my camera few weeks ago, I used my cellphone to take photos of the dishes that I cooked few days ago but I was not satisfied with the outcome, not so clear. She just returned it the other day. The recipe that I am posting now was not mine, it was from Donna’s collection of recipes. She showed it to me few months ago and when I saw the strawberries at home, I remembered that she has a recipe for Strawberry Gelato, that’s why I asked her to make one. We both tried to make the recipe, she prepared the strawberries while I was mixing the other ingredients. As you see in the picture, the color is not pink like the usual strawberry gelato since the recipe calls for a red food color but we didn’t had it at home that time, the only food color left at home was green so that wouldn’t be possible. I also added chocolate syrup on top when I served it and it was really good.

3 cups cut-up strawberries
6 cups milk
1 1/3 cups sugar
12 egg yolks, beaten
Several drops red food coloring

1. Place all the cut-up strawberries in a blender container, cover and blend until smooth.
2. Combine 3 cups of the milk, sugar and egg yolks in a large saucepan. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture coats a spoon.
3. Remove from heat. Stir in the remaining milk, the pureed strawberries, and food coloring.
4. Cover surface of mixture with cling film. Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight until chilled.
5. Freeze mixture for 4 hours. Serve.

We went strawberry picking the other day so we have lots of strawberies in the fridge now that’s why i want to try this recipe. I’m just wondering what kind of milk to mix with it. Thank you very much!
