Mixed Berry Gelato

Fresh Cream - 1 cup (I used local farm's fresh raw cream)
Whole Milk - 1 cup
Raw Honey - 1/3 cup or use 1/3 cup raw sugar

Mixed Berries - 1 cup (i used a mix of strawberries, blueberries and pitted cherries)
Water - 1 tbsp
Lemon Juice - 1 tsp
Raw Honey - 1 tbsp (optional, depending on how sweet the berries are)
Amaretto (Almond Liquor)- 1 tbsp (optional)

Mix together fresh cream, whole milk, honey and whisk till they are completely mixed. Bring the mixture to boil over medium low heat. Once it begins to boil, remove from heat and cool. Cover and refrigerate for at least two to three hours or overnight.

To make the berry sauce, add a little water to the berries and cook on low heat for around 15 minutes till the berries are all soft and the sauce is thick. Mix lemon juice, honey and amaretto(if using). The mixture can be sieved to remove the small seeds but I don't sieve as I like with the seeds. Cool and refrigerate.

Turn on the ice cream maker and pour the cream and berry sauce in the frozen ice cream bowl (I used a Cuisinart ICE-21). Let it mix for 15 to 20 minutes till the mix is thickened. Remove and serve the soft creamy gelato right away. For a firmer consistency, transfer the gelato to an airtight container and freeze for around 2 hours.
