If you’re looking for an easy summer recipe to impress your friends I highly recommend Strawberry-Buttermilk Gelato. To celebrate the end of the oppressive heat and humidity last week (or because I was looking for an excuse to break out my new ice cream maker) I made a batch.
The recipe was a breeze to assemble. I prepared the simple syrup in the morning to allow time to thoroughly chill. That night I just added some fresh strawberries and buttermilk, pureed the mixture, and poured it into the freezer container. Thirty minutes of hands-free churning and chilling later I had a delicious, creamy gelato.
