 Pumpkin Gelato

Photo by: Joseph DeLeo

When I was in college there was a-now defunct-ice cream shop that made the most irresistible pumpkin ice cream. After initially turning up his nose, my son Ben described it as cold pumpkin pie without the crust, which led us to another idea: fill a crust with this ice cream and then you really have cold pumpkin ice cream pie. Garnish with toasted or spiced pecans.

Yield: MAKES 1½ TO 2 PINTS

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 large egg yolk, at room temperature
  • Pinch kosher salt
  • 1 cup canned unsweetened pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon (optional)

Directions

Place the milk, cream, ¼ cup of the brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and allspice in a small pan and cook over low heat, whisking from time to time, until it is warm, about 175°F.

Place the egg yolk, ¼ cup of the brown sugar and the salt in a small metal bowl and whisk until completely mixed. Add ¼ cup of the warm milk mixture to the egg, whisking all the while.

Continue adding milk to the egg, ¼ cup at a time, until you have added about ½ cups. Slowly, whisking all the while, return the now milk and egg mixture to the remaining milk mixture in the pan and continue cooking until it just begins to thicken or reaches about 185°F. Do not allow the mixture to boil.

Set the mixture aside until it reaches room temperature.

Pour through a medium fine strainer into a metal bowl and discard the solids.

Add the pumpkin, vanilla extract and bourbon, if desired, and mix well.

Cover and refrigerate until it reaches 40°F, about 3 hours.

Transfer to an ice cream maker and proceed according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
