Milk Gelato (Fior di Latte Gelato)

  • Serves

    makes about 1 quart

Jon Snyder of Il Laboratorio del Gelato, a gelato parlor in New York City, gave us hints for making this silky gelato.


  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 7 tsp. cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp. apricot preserves


Step 1

Bring cream and 2 cups of the milk to a simmer in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Meanwhile, dissolve sugar and cornstarch in the remaining milk in a small bowl.

Step 2

Remove pan from heat and stir in milk-cornstarch mixture. Return pan to medium heat and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil and thickens slightly, about 10 minutes. Stir in preserves, strain into a bowl, and set aside to cool. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled, 2-3 hours.

Step 3

Process mixture in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer's directions.
