    Dee514's Note:

    This recipe is very close to a true Italian gelato. Gelato is more dense than American ice cream because the churning and freezing process differs from the one used for ice cream. Most electric ice cream machines will produce a very good gelato. This recipe requires about 1 to 2 hours refrigeration time to chill the cooked base before processing in your machine. Cook time = the cooking time for the custard base. The freezing/processing time for your ice cream machine is not included in the Prep/Cook times below.

      I made this recipe yesterday to take to an Intalian themed birthday dinner party. It is delicious but has too much vanilla. The recipe calls for 2 TABLESPOONS of vanilla and I believeit should be 2 TEASPOONS. So I made a second batch without any vanilla and mixed it with the first. Still a bit too strong of vanilla but I'm out of eggs to make another batch. I also added a couple of drops of red food coloring because it was very pale in color.

      The taste is delicious! I used about 1/2 cup or more fresh sliced strawberries -as we have a lot right now... but I had difficulty getting it to turn to custard at the stove - I must have been standing there 45 minutes stirring - if i do it again, i will cook it in the double boiler over high heat b/c low heat took way too long. But yes, it's tasty!

      Very good! I wasn't sure I had the right consistency for the custard base, but after time in the freezer it seemed ok. I only made a half recipe but I'm sure I'll be making it again. Thanks for sharing.
