  • Summary

    [Photographs: Vicky Wasik] In Italian, fior di latte is a figure of speech (flower of milk) indicating something made with cow's milk of the highest caliber, like mozzerella. In this case, it refers to gelato in its purest form: no eggs, no fruit, no chocolate, or even vanilla—just pure dairy. For that reason, it's vital to use the freshest, most flavorful milk and cream, from grass-fed cows. It's a perfect excuse to splurge on a few bottles from a local dairy, but if that's not an option there are a few national brands that are more than adequate to the task (see note).

    Ingredients

    • 9 1/4 ounces plain or very lightly toasted sugar (about 1 1/3 cups; 265g)
    • 1 1/4 ounces cornstarch (about 1/4 cup; 35g)
    • 1/2 plus 1/8 teaspoon (2.5g) Diamond Crystal kosher salt, or more to taste; for table salt, use about half as much by volume or the same weight
    • 20 ounces best quality whole milk, preferably grass-fed, divided (about 2 1/2 cups; 565g)
    • 8 ounces best quality heavy cream, preferably grass-fed (about 1 cup; 225g)
