Gelato al Limone {Lemon Gelato}


Ah, gelato, there’s nothing like it! And with the help of my handy dandy Cuisinart maker I can make it anytime we want. I love all things lemon. The more pucker the better ; ) So of course for the first gelato of the season I wanted to make Limone! It’s sunshine in a cup, or cone however you prefer! You can customize the tartness to your taste, just add more or less zest & lemon juice & voila! Gelato always makes me feel like I’m in Italy! It wasn’t uncommon for me to eat it 2-3 times per day especially in the spring & summertime. Perhaps it was the fact that I could NEVER pass a gelatteria without stopping, & lucky for me they’re not hard to find LOL

SemplicementeΒ favoloso {simply fabulous} ! And now I know you’d like some of that gelato al limone right? Of course I wouldn’t leave you without the recipe! This time around I used heavy whipping cream & half and half for an extra luscious lemony gelato (this is the way my Mom makes hers ; ) ! I have used milk to make my other gelato recipes and you could certainly do that as well. You can make this up ahead of time and then just pop it into your gelato maker when you’re ready to enjoy! In the warmer months I ALWAYS keep my gelato maker bowl in the freezer so that it’s ready to go when we are as I’m not the most patient person in the world ; ) Especially when it comes to GELATO!


What you’ll need:
6 lemons – zested & juiced (approx 1/2 cup lemon zest & 1 cup lemon juice)
6 egg yolks
1 1/4 cups heavy whipping cream
2 1/2 cups half and half
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups sugar

What to do:
Whisk your egg yolks, heavy cream together into a bowl & set aside. Into a large sauce pan add half and half, lemon zest and sugar. Heat over medium heat stirring frequently until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat. Add some of the warm half and half mixture to the egg yolk mixture into order to temper. GRADUALLY add the egg yolk mixture into the half and half mixture and stir well to combine. Return to medium heat and cook until mixture thickens. Remove from heat stir in vanilla extract.

Allow pan to cool slightly cover with saran wrap and place into the fridge to cool completely. When you’re ready to make your gelato stir in the lemon juice and follow instructions on your gelato maker!

    Hi Paula,

    I retweeted your message about the contest.

    Question: Do I have to do all four things listed to enter the contest or just pick one of the four methods, plus the optional #5 task of following Bertolli on Twitter. If I do have to do all four tasks, I can’t enter because I don’t have a Facebook account. Please advise.

  20. 22

    My favorite part of this webisode was when Marissa’s family showed up to make & share dinner.

  21. 23

    What I loved most about the video is how they featured Bertolli’s frozen dinners which I wasn’t aware of until now. I like how they used olive oil in the pasta! I do that to all my pasta dishes makes for a flavorful dish. Rocco was great and charming, the sea was beautiful. Very good video detailed instructions how to cook the shrimp I love watching the behind the scenes cooking of a famous Italian Restaurant. Great job on the video! Olive oil is my favorite kitchen ingredient.

  22. 24

    I now like you on facebook. Love those ice cream dishes in your picture. We had those when I was a child and I’d love to have them again.

    The shrimp boat ride looked so much more exciting than going to the gulf. On a boat, wind in your hair, sea smells, cute guys with accents….long for the beach now. Going to make the lemon gelato this weekend when my Mom comes up. Do I get extra points for having a sweater like Marissa’s?

    My favorite part of the webisode was watching Marisa refuse to participate in cleaning the shrimp. I thought it was funny, but I personally enjoy cleaning shrimp- especially when they are freshly caught. I also loved when Rocco was pouring the wine, as the anticipation of sitting down to a fine meal was contagious. Oh, do I miss Italia!

    My favorite part of all 4 of the videos was just the old buildings and beautiful landscapes they visited; and probably the searching for the mushrooms

    carnival was one of my favorite scenes, really cool with the clues leading them to different areas, that would be so much fun. And who wouldn’t love the chance to catch your food and then have a chef help you prepare it.

    I really liked the scenes at the Carnivale. My favorite part was when Gabriella threw the shrimp back in the sea. I also liked the meal at the end but wonder if I could of eaten it without thinking of the poor shrimps πŸ™‚

    By the way, your recipe for gelato looks fantastic – if I win the gelato maker I will make it!

    Hi Paula,
    I’ll have to get a gelato/ice cream maker eventually …. But until then is there anyway to make this without one?
    It looks great, by the way?

    • 310.1

      Hi Brittany! Thank you : ) I’ve never tried it without my maker BUT you certainly could try just placing it into a bowl into the freezer and stirring every 15 mins or so…Let me know how it turns out if you try it : ) <3
