What You’ll Need

Ingredients:

2 cups whole milk

3/4 cup sugar

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Pinch of salt

6 large eggs, separated

1 1/2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate, divided*

vanilla extract

For the gelato base: Combine 1 cup apple gelato and 1 cup chocolate chips in a food processor; pulse until well combined. (The mixture will be thick.) Pour mixture into an 11×7-inch baking dish; freeze for at least 2 hours or up to 12 hours.

For the topping: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Bring milk, sugar, cinnamon, and salt to a simmer in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Whisk egg yolks in a small bowl until light and fluffy. Gradually whisk in hot milk mixture until combined. Pour mixture over frozen gelato base. Bake for about 45 minutes or until set and slightly browned around the edges. Let cool on the pan for 5 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with reserved chocolate chips if desired. Drizzle with vanilla extract if desired.

How to Make Apple Gelato

Apple gelato is a delicious and refreshing treat that you can make at home. Follow these simple steps to get started:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and coat with butter.

2. Peel, core, and slice two apples into thin pieces. Spread the apple slices on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, or until tender and golden brown. Let cool completely before using in the gelato recipe below.

3. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the cooled apple slices with 1 cup of heavy cream and 1/4 cup of sugar. Stir well to combine.

4. In an electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, whip the mixture until it thickens up and forms soft peaks. You can also use an immersion blender to blend the mixture completely if desired.

5. Chill the mixture for at least 2 hours before using in your gelato recipe (or store in the fridge for up to 3 days). Store any leftover apple gelato in an airtight container in the fridge for later use!

Tips for Making the Perfect Gelato

Making gelato at home is a simple process that can be executed with just a few basic ingredients. Here are some tips to ensure your gelato is perfect every time:

1. Start with the right ingredients. Gelato requires high-quality cream and sugar, so make sure you use the best quality ingredients possible. Avoid using supermarket brands, as these often contain inferior ingredients that will affect the final product.

2. Don’t overmix. Overmixing will create ice crystals that will ruin your gelato. Use a handheld mixer or a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment to mix the cream and sugar together until smooth.

3. Use an ice cream maker. An ice cream maker ensures a consistent temperature and helps to avoid overmixed ice cream. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for using your machine, but be sure to keep an eye on the mixture throughout the freezing process to avoid any icy patches forming on the surface of the gelato.

4. Serve immediately once made. Gelato should be served straight away after being made so it retains its freshness and flavour profile. If it is going to be stored for some time, place it in an airtight container or freezer bag before serving

Conclusion

Apple gelato is a divine dessert that can be made at home using simple ingredients and a little bit of patience. If you’re new to the art of gelato making, or if you’ve never attempted it before, following these steps will help you create an iconic apple gelato that everyone will love. Bon appétit!
