This was good. I expected a creamier texture but it was watery. I added a vanilla bean and nutmeg to keep in line with the original gelato alla crema.

Great recipe! Try the following flavouring.... 1) you can add a half cup of Nutella once the cream is hot before tempering the eggs (reduce sugar if you like). 2) You can add the zest of two lemons while the milk heats, then add 2/3 cups lemon juice after tempering the eggs and reheating the mix (in this case I'd use higher fat dairy to compensate for the wateriness of the lemon juice). 3) Add the zest of one orange to the fairy as it heats. Once heated, add 100g high quality dark chocolate and melt before continuing with tempering the eggs. Good luck!

I'm real focusing on texture. I've had a few good batches and will continue to work with this recipe. An Italian guy I work for says gelato should be made with no eggs, so I want to perfect it with no eggs, although eggs give it a nice texture.

We made a cherry version of this by adding 18 large pitted diced cherries during the second heating and then adding another 12more large pitted diced cherries when it was placed in the ice cream maker.

This was outstanding. I used 3 eggs, brown sugar, and half and half instead of cream. I threw in two handfuls of bittersweet chocolate chips while warming the milk. Rich, creamy and outstanding!!!!

I took the advice of another reviewer, reducing the sugar to 1/4c, and added about 2/3c of Nutella when it was mixing in the ice cream machine. It was a hit!

Made it according to the recipe/directions. Added 1-2tsp peppermint extract and roughly chopped dark chocolate. Perfect mint chip gelato!

Very good base gelato recipe. I'm waiting for mine to go into the freezer, and it tastes divine. Thank you.
