FRESH STRAWBERRY GELATO - Gelato alla Fragola
Tis' the season to get strawberries at your local farm stand or market. If you can't use them right away, place the berries flat on a paper towel lined plate. Do not rinse or hull until ready to use. Ice cream contains 15 to 20% butterfat. Gelato contains anywhere
from 5 to 7% butterfat. These strawberries were so sweet, I only added ½ cup (125 ml) of sugar. You can add a little more, if you prefer your gelato sweeter. The optional addition of pomegranate juice, adds a little more intense flavor and color.
