Recipe: Strawberry-Buttermilk Gelato

It's snowing, and I am making ice cream. Wrong season, I suppose, but that is how it goes with me sometimes.

I made Cooking Light's Oven Fried Chicken on Sunday (in a cookbook that I have yet to review). It was delicious, but it left me with half a quart of leftover buttermilk. I didn't want to waste it, so I started looking up recipes for things using buttermilk. I saw this one, and since my Pineapple-Coconut Gelato from New Years was such a success, I thought this one might be good also... not to mention that we'd had strawberries from Trader Joe's a couple weeks ago, and they were so good, I was looking forward to getting them again.*

Oh, this gelato was so good. As with the Pineapple-Coconut one, it's not gelato in the same way that you would expect to get from Italy. It's more along the lines of a sorbet, but creamier. I was worried about the buttermilk part, thinking that surely it would be weirdly tangy or have an aftertaste, but honestly I wouldn't have known it contained buttermilk if I hadn't made it myself. Instead, the strawberries were really standing out, and boy were they delcious. So, so good.

The recipe made more than I could fit in my ice cream machine, so we had some on Tuesday, and I saved the mixture and we just made more tonight. I bought ingredients to make the Pineapple-Coconut one, too, so that will be a yummy treat tomorrow or Sunday.

*So much for my ongoing desire to eat foods in the proper season.
