Recipes Tips

If you want to make this recipe even better, here are some tips:

Firstly, make sure to use ripe and juicy strawberries for the puree. The sweeter the strawberries, the better the gelato will taste.

Secondly, don't overheat the milk mixture when adding the egg yolks. Otherwise, the mixture will curdle, and the gelato will have a strange texture.

Thirdly, let the gelato mixture chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight. This will help the flavors blend together and give the gelato a smooth texture.

Finally, serve the gelato with some fresh strawberries or whipped cream for an extra touch of sweetness and flavor.

With these tips, you'll be able to make the best strawberry gelato ever. Enjoy!
