    • About

    Use the sweetest tangerines possible for this ice. The tiny clementines that appear around the end of the year in American markets are ideal for this recipe.


    • 1 batch Basic Mixture for Fruit Ices
    • cups strained tangerine juice


    Prepare the basic mixture and cool to room temperature. Stir in the tangerine juice and freeze in an ice cream maker.

    Pack the gelato in a cold container, press plastic wrap against the surface, and cover the container with a lid. Store in the freezer. Serve the gelato on the day it is prepared for best texture.
