Talbot's Blood Gelato
One of the famous courses from Talbot´s and Russell`s very own table.
- 16 ounces of frozen sour cherries
- 1 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 cup water
- Juice of 1 lemon
First make up a simple syrup using the sugar and water. Boil Sugar and water until sugar is completely dissolved and reduce to around 2 cups. This usually takes around 5 minutes. Pop in the fridge to cool.
Put the sour cherries in a food processor and pulse until smooth. Push through a fine mesh sieve to extract all juices. Add a touch of lemon.
Add 1 cup of simple syrup to the cherry juice and refrigerate for approximately 3 hours. The Blood Gelato was really quite concentrated and, since I like mine a little tart, I did not add much syrup. If you have a bit more of a sweet tooth then add a little more.
After 3 hours remove from the refrigerator and skim off the little bits of cherry skin which may have gathered on the top. Do not miss this step unless you want a grainy texture…
Pop in ice cream machine and process according to your individual machines instructions. Pop in freezer until required.
I ran a little extra cherry coulis through prior to serving for a True Blood finish… garnish with a couple of mint leaves.
