A gelato dish from northern Italy enjoyed by all. Garnish with whole strawberries.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 3 cups strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 1 (8 ounce) container mascarpone cheese
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ⅓ teaspoon salt

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Place strawberries into a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Pour puree through a fine-meshed sieve or strainer over a large bowl. Press on the berries using a rubber spatula or wooden spoon to extract all juices; discard solids.

  3. 3 Place chilled mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions, about 20 minutes. Transfer to an airtight container and freeze until firm, 2 hours to overnight.
  4. 4 Let gelato sit at room temperature for 10 to 15 minutes before serving.
