Olive Oil Gelato

Category: Desserts, Frozen

 Ingredients List

  • 8 ea egg yolks
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 4 cups cream
  • 1 cup good Olive Oil


First make the custard by whisking yolks and sugar together until light in color.

Then bring milk to a boil.

Temper yolks into milk by slowly whisking about one-quarter of the milk to the yolks.

Then pour the mixture back into the hot milk, stirring constantly.

Cook mixture over medium heat constantly stirring until it reaches 180 degrees Fahrenheit or until it is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.

Strain through a fine mesh strainer and cool completely.

Mix the custard and cream together and churn in a gelato machine.

When mixture is three-quarters of the way done churning, slowly drizzle in the olive oil.
