Pistachio Gelato


Ingredients:

1 c shelled pistachios

1/2 c sugar

3 c milk

1/2 c sugar

2 Tbs cornstarch

1/2 tsp lemon zest

Directions:

Grind the pistachios in a food processor until fine, almost powder. Add 1/2 c sugar and continue to grind until it becomes smoother and holds together - play dough like consistency, though a bit more grainy.



Combine half of milk, 1/2 c sugar, and lemon zest in a medium saucepan. Whisk until smooth. Heat milk over medium heat. At almost boiling, whisk in the cornstarch. Continue to cook for another 2-3 minutes, until thickened. Turn off heat and add remaining milk and pistachio paste.



Chill in refrigerator, after which proceed with your ice cream maker according to manufacturer instructions.
