    gelato, anyone?

    Since the mmmmm......chocolate! thread http://coffeesnobs.com.au/YaBB.pl?num=1174018247/0 was popular, I thought I would offer a pointer to a place where I describe some experimentation with making gelato: http://opinion-nation.blogspot.com/2008/06/easy-low-fat-gelato.html

    Ill update my description with any ideas from others who can report improvements in technique. The basic idea as I describe it there has 2 departures from the norm. Use pre-frozen fruit to start with, and use a potato masher to mix in everything, break the fruit down into smaller pieces and aerate the mix. Ive had some good results (soft texture, good fruity flavour) but havent taken the time to codify the details (exactly how much sugar and milk vs. fruit). If not quite right, it comes out a bit hard to scoop but still tastes good.

    Since we have people here who like trying out new ideas and experimenting with culinary science, I offer refinement of the technique as challenge.

    If considered OT, discussion via PM welcome.

    Nice blog Phil

    I would like to suggest an espresso recipe
    Finely chopped or grated dates
    Savoraty biscuits soaked in espresso
    and follow all other steps as you described

    All interesting ideas but some research needed on how well theyll work because the fruits I tried so far are reasonably high in pectin, i.e., have a tendency to gel.

    Ill try to get to some variation on the above and report back, but if anyone gets there first, Id like to hear how it works out.
