vanilla gelato

I have been working on non-dairy eggless frozen deserts for a while.  I was reading a cookbook and came across a gelato recipe that did not have any eggs in it.  My thought was that I had to try it.  Not bad even though it did not have as much stirring while freezing as I would like!

This actually had  a caramelish flavor because I ran out of white sugar and used brown.  Once I got past the initial taste/texture, I decided I liked it.

Vanilla Gelato

4 cups hempmilk

1/4 cup arrowroot

1 cup brown sugar

4 teaspoons vanilla

In a large saucepan over medium heat, put 1 cup hempmilk, arrowroot, vanilla, and sugar.  Whisk well which means until the arrowroot in blended in.

Pour in the rest of the hempmilk and cook while stirring all the time until it coats the back of a spoon.  This will be ten to fifteen minutes.  Think of this as time for meditation.  Like when you wash rice (yes, really).

Pour into a bowl that has a cover and cool in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.  Freeze following your ice maker directions or your favorite non-mechanical way.

This did not come out as creamy as I would have liked because I did not stir it as much as I should have.  With the hempmilk, there was a nutty flavor.  When you are going for straight vanilla, not quite what you may be thinking but it was yummy in its own right.
