Inspired by conversations on the Food52 Hotline, we're sharing tips and tricks that make navigating all of our kitchens easier and more fun. 

Today: Marian shows you how to create delicious, homemade olive oil gelato using the KitchenAid® Stand Mixer and Ice Cream Maker attachment. 

In baseball caps and flip flops, we happily slurp up melting scoops of classic American ice cream. But on occasion, we crave a fancier frozen treat. Enter gelato -- ice cream's smoother, creamier cousin. Its dense, thick texture is harder to recreate at home, but luckily, it's easy to fake. 

The key is to create a thick, aioli-like base, like the one in Amanda's Olive Oil Gelato. Save yourself some counter space and process the custard with an ice cream maker attachment for your stand mixer -- it churns just like a traditional ice cream machine and can be stored in the freezer. Scoop it into bowls, finish with a pinch of herbs and sea salt, and drizzle it with olive oil for a refreshing (and very Italian) end to a hot summer day. 

Olive Oil Gelato

Serves 2 to 4

3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons water
3/4 cup whole milk
Large pinch salt
4 egg yolks
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons olive oil

when the directions for how to make ice cream in a stand mixer include "buy the ice cream maker attachment for your kitchenaid stand mixer," something is wrong. I was mislead and feel very disappointed.
