Whip the egg yolks with the sugar at maximum speed for about 5 minutes, until you have a soft fluffy cream.
Meanwhile, pour the milk in a saucepan and bring it almost to a boil. Cook for about 5 minutes. Don't boil the milk. Check that the temperature remains at about 85°C (185 F) with a kitchen thermometer.
Transfer the egg and sugar fluffy cream to a saucepan. Pour the hot milk slowly. Keep mixing while you do it. If you want to flavor your gelato, this is the time to add either grated lemon zest or two drops of vanilla extract or vanilla bean. Now put it back on the heat and cook for another 5 minutes without boiling and always stirring. Then turn off the heat and add the cold heavy cream. Mix really well.
If you have an ice cream maker, pour the mixture into the machine and start it. It will take about 40 minutes, depending on the model. After the necessary time, your gelato is ready! Fresh, creamy and nutritious.
If you don't have an ice cream maker, Pour the mixture into a gelato container and place it in the freezer for about 5 hours. Every 30 minutes you have to break the frozen surface. So remove from the freezer and mix for about 30 seconds using a hand whisk or an electric whisk on low speed. This step is necessary in order not to create ice crystals in the gelato and have a creamy result. Of course this is a bit more laborious process, but it’s worth it. You will surely have an exquisite authentic Italian Gelato!
