Linda...well done!
Mr. Green
Absolutely fantastic...you've got it!
Now you can give those gelato places here a run for their money... Wink

cwl...no not really...but then again,different freezers different results. If you do happen to find it a bit tough to scoop,leave in the fridge for 15 minutes before scooping.
Try the recipe!
Very Happy

There was one gelato recipe I made yonks ago, where it was slightly hard to scoop out after 24 hours of freezing. Next time, I left it in the fridge first for 15 mins and that made it easier. i figured it was the large qty of egg yolks as I didn't have that problem when I made ice cream with whole eggs.

Ya, itching to trying out your gelato recipes, Stef. But have to KIV temporarily as weather too hot that I know ice cream will start melting before I even have a chance to freeze it! Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

Linda, wah... that is such a generous offer Embarassed paiseh leh... but I think I should just indulge virtually Wink

The gelato does indeed look very good. I'm very impressed with all the work you are churning out. For the first time at KC, I'm so tempted to go out and get myself a new piece of equipment :lol: ... an ice cream maker. Hmmm....

No need to paiseh. I love to have as many "tasters" as possible because at times I do bake more than my family can eat.

If you do like ice cream, the ice cream maker is worth your investment.

Stef

The chocolate hazelnut gelato tasted really rich. Good for those chocolate lovers. But personally, I think I will use less sugar the next time round.

I also did the green tea gelato yesterday. This time, I used 1 cup of sugar and more green tea powder than your recipe as my dd loves a strong green tea taste. Tasted delicious although texture wise, it is not as creamy as the chocolate hazelnut. Not sure why though.

Linda...sure thing...by all means cut the sugar if you want.

How much green tea poder did you add?
As it can stiffen the mixture too much and make it less creamy...a bit grainy even. Was that what happened?
Just add in a bit more milk next time. Very Happy

It is as if you are watching over me each time I do gelato. Yes, that's exactly what happened. I added more green tea powder than your recipe because my dd likes a strong green tea taste. Okay. I will remember to add more milk next time round.

eeeee Linda...so creepy hahahaaaaa.
Like I'm breathing down your neck... :shock:

I'm sure you'll get it right next round....no worries!
At least you have time to experiment...back to school means no time for me to have fun in the kitchen!
But I just made this lovely eggplant soup with indian-italian type of vibes...very delicious.
Will post in International soup thread!

Stefanie, the green tea powder used for ice cream is not the bakeable type, right? Where can we buy green tea powder in singapore to make green tea ice cream? Im going back to sg in Dec and would like to buy some so tht i can try making green tea ice cream. When i was holidaying in Korea, I had tasted the most delish green tea ice cream. Unfortunately, the ones sold here in Australia does not taste similar although they looked similar!!

sspaks...I usually buy "matcha powder"...or powdered green tea...strong stuff and therefore you don't have to use so much.
Your best bet will be to shop at Isetan Scotts Japanese supermarket.
Very Happy

Should be this kind of vivid green colour:

Thks, Stef for the tip. Will definitely check out Isetan. Any brand to recommend? I once bought green tea from a korean shop here but when i added hot water, it was brownish colour not green. Also, tasted different. I cant remember whether it was called matcha green tea or just green tea though!

May..unfortunately you cannot because the flavour and the colour isn't strong enough.
Check out the nearest japanese supermarket...and look for powdered matcha. Very Happy
