This Italian-inspired dessert is velvety in texture. Milk powder added to the mix inhibits the formation of ice crystals.

  • Heat remaining 2 1/2 cups milk in a heavy saucepan until steaming. Gradually whisk the hot milk into the egg mixture. Return the mixture to the pan and cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon for about 5 minutes, or until the custard is thick enough to coat a spoon. Do not boil, or the custard will curdle.

  • Remove from heat, strain through a fine sieve into a clean bowl or immediately transfer to a clean bowl. Stir in sambuca. Cool, cover and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled. Freeze in an ice cream maker, following manufacturer's instructions.

Amazing gelato recipe--creamy chocolate-y with just a hint of licorice. I would definitely recommend this recipe. And it was quite easy to make too with an ice cream maker. Read More
