Choose your gelato. Ok, the strawberries were looking especially good at the shops, so I chose those. This is about as simple a frozen dessert as you could find. Purée the fruit in the food processor with the sugar, whip the cream slightly, combine, cool (per ice cream maker's instructions), and freeze.
I put the mixture together on Tuesday evening, expecting to freeze it for dinner on Wednesday after picking Bill up from the train station. But his train was delayed leaving the Netherlands, so he arrived here very very late and we didn't take the time to freeze it. I did this the next night, after it chilled two days in the fridge. Never mind, it was yummy.
The recipe says it serves 4. These would be very generous servings. We had the 3 largish servings shown here, plus another 3 servings, a bit smaller, served with slices of a nice cake we bought at a foire during the day.
