Ingredients

  • 750 g Chopped 'Pesche Noce' - Smooth Skin Peaches Stones removed but leave the skins on
  • 120 g Icing Sugar / Maple Syrup / Honey
  • 2 tblsp Pasturised Egg White This is sold in cartons in the supermarket.

Instructions

  • Place the Peaches & Sugar into a blender and blend on high for 2 mins. Keep checking and cleaning down the sides of the blender during this time to ensure all of the peaches have been blended into a smooth liquid with no lumps.
  • Add the two tablespoons of pasturised egg whites, and mix gentle just until incorporated, no need to beat any area into the mixture at this stage.
  • Pour the mixture into your Gelato machine and churn for 35 - 45 mins. Times will vary depending on the machines used.
  • Once is is pale in colour and has frozen into a thick mixture, then using a spatula carefully scoop the gelato into a large tupperware container and place in the freezer for at least 6 hours before serving.
    Of course if you just can't wait you can have a scoop already, but the texture and flavour will mature better after 6 hours in the freezer. Enjoy!
