Ingredients

Home-made raspberry gelato

  • 2 1/2 cup (600ml) cream
  • 6 egg yolks

Method

Home-made raspberry gelato
  • 1
    Bring milk and cream to the boil in a medium saucepan, remove from heat. Meanwhile, whisk egg yolks and sugar in a medium bowl until creamy. Gradually whisk hot milk into egg mixture. Return to saucepan; cook, stirring , over medium heat, without boiling, until mixture thickens slightly and coats the back of a spoon (this will take about 8-10 minutes). Run a finger through the custard on the back of the spoon - it should hold its shape. Cool.

Spoon the almost frozen ice-cream into the medium bowl of an electric mixer. Beat on high speed for about 4-5 minutes or until smooth and thick. Pour the raspberry ice-cream into a deep 1.5 litre container; cover and freeze at least 6 hours or overnight.
