Honey Gelato

A rich-tasting gelato, made the traditional Italian way, with an easy-to-cook custard that's frozen in a countertop or crank ice cream maker, can satisfy the sweet tooth all year round. Try it solo as a light ending note to any meal, or serve it atop hot apple pie or toasted slices of pound cake for a flavor-packed treat.

  • Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup)

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup nonfat dry milk
  • 1 (12-ounce) can evaporated fat-free milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 1 cup 2% reduced-fat milk
  • Mint sprigs (optional)

Preparation

Combine first 3 ingredients in a medium, heavy saucepan. Heat mixture over medium heat until honey dissolves, stirring frequently (do not boil). Remove from heat.

Combine salt and egg yolks in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Gradually add honey mixture to egg mixture, stirring constantly with a whisk. Place honey mixture in pan; cook over medium heat until mixture reaches 180° (about 3 minutes), stirring constantly (do not boil). Remove from heat; stir in 2% milk. Cool completely.

Pour mixture into the freezer can of an ice-cream freezer; freeze according to manufacturer's instructions. Spoon gelato into a freezer-safe container. Cover and freeze 2 hours or until firm. Garnish with mint sprigs, if desired.
