Ask any gelato lover what his favourite flavour is and many will answer “pistachio” without a moment’s hesitation. Pistachio gelato leaves an impressive taste on the palate and when prepared correctly it can outshine other gelatos and leave them appearing tasteless. It can be quite difficult to find a great tasting pistachio gelato, however, since the pistachio flavour is quite often counterfeited. You can find artificial pistachio flavourings on the market but a true gelato connoisseur can tell the difference between an imitation and a genuine pistachio gelato.
The key to preparing an outstanding gelato is the paste. A true pistachio paste provides an authentic pistachio flavour and you’d never find anyone in Sicily or Italy using a fake product. It simply wouldn’t happen!
Almondena premium pistachio paste can be added directly to a classic or Sicilian-style gelato base. The mix of ingredients are then added to the ice cream maker bowl and frozen according to the instructions provided by the manufacturer. Once the gelato becomes slightly icy but is still soft, the machine should be stopped.
The mixture can be kept frozen for approximately 2 weeks. It should be taken out of the freezer for approximately 10 minutes before serving to allow it to soften for easier scooping. You’ll be amazed to see the lovely green appearance of the gelato and its flavorful aroma as it makes its way from the serving dish to the individual bowls. You’ll be twice as impressed once you taste the gelato and recognize the bold presence of the pistachio taste.
