Craft Stash is on the road - this time to Brooklyn to learn to make gelato with a friend!

Lady Earl Grey Gelato


  • 2 c milk
  • 1 c heavy cream
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • salt

  • Sauce Pan
  • 3 bowls
  • Fork
  • Ice
  • Ice water
  • Ice cream/ gelato maker

  • Wooden Spoon


Before cooking anything set up the double cooling bowls with ice and cold water in the bottom bowl and a clean bowl on top.  Put the sieve on top of clean bowl.


1.  Boil milk and cream with tea.  Once the flavor has sufficiently combined with the milk, put mixture 

through a sieve. 

2.  Bring milk back to a boil.  

3. Mix egg yolks and sugar. 

4. Add two or three tablespoons of hot milk to eggs to temper the eggs.

5. Lower heat of milk. 

6. Add eggs to milk and stir constantly  with wooden spoon until mixture is thick and coats the back of the spoon. 

7. Transfer the mixture to the double bowl set up with ice.  Thoroughly cool and then put mixture in ice cream maker where it will mix for 30 to 45 minutes.

8. Enjoy right away or store gelato in the freezer.
