Great Seasonal Recipes for the First Day of Summer

Share

Today, June 20, marks the first day of summer, or as Farmview likes to call it, It’s Finally Summer Day! Now is the perfect time to fire up the grill, break out the ice cream maker and celebrate these summer days and nights. We wanted to create some tasty treats to beat the heat and boy, did we find some HOT, HOT, HOT ones! These recipes use ingredients that you can find exclusively at Farmview Market. How cool is that?

Key Lime Pie Gelato Sandwicheskeylimepie


Ingredients


For the Gelato:


  • 2 cups  whole milk

  • 1 cup heavy cream

  • 4 large egg yolks

  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/4 cup fresh key lime juice (about 8-10 limes)

  • 1 tbsp. key lime zest (about 4-5 limes)

  • 1 Package graham crackers


*You will need an ice-cream maker*

Directions


Place a large clean glass bowl inside a larger bowl filled with ice. Place a fine mesh sieve over the clean bowl and set aside. Combine the milk and cream in a heavy bottom medium saucepan. Heat on medium-low stirring frequently until bubbles start to form around the inside edges of the pan. If using an instant read thermometer, you are looking for a temperature of 170 degrees.

In a small mixing bowl whisk the egg yolks until smooth. Gradually whisk in the granulated sugar and continue whisking until the mixture is pale and thick. Slowly temper the egg yolks by adding a drizzle of the hot milk mixture while whisking constantly. Continue whisking and adding the hot milk until all ingredients are combined.

Return the custard to the saucepan and heat on medium-low stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Cook until the mixture reaches 185 degrees or when the custard coats the back of the wooden spoon. Do not boil the custard. Pour the custard through the sieve into the bowl in the ice water bath. Allow the custard to cool for about 30 minutes. Stir every 5 minutes. When cooled, cover and refrigerate overnight or for at least 4 hours. When you are ready to make the gelato, stir in the key lime juice and zest. Process according to the manufacturer instructions on your ice-cream maker.

If making ice cream sandwiches, pour the gelato into a plastic wrap lined flat casserole dish with a 2" side. Depending on the desired thickness, you can use a 13”x9" pan or smaller. Cover with plastic wrap pressed on the top of the gelato and freeze until solid. Overnight works best.

Once frozen, remove the gelato using the plastic wrap and place on a cutting board. Using a cookie cutter of your desired shape, cut out the gelato and place between two graham crackers. Freeze in an airtight container until ready to serve. Remove the ice cream sandwiches 10 minutes before serving.
