Total time: 20 minutes, plus freezing time
Servings: 8 (Makes 1 quart gelato)
2 cups homemade ricotta
1 cup whipping cream
1 cup whole milk
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon orange liqueur, such as Grand Marnier
2/3 cup honey
1. Purée the ricotta, whipping cream, milk, sugar, liqueur and honey in a food processor until quite smooth. Taste and add more honey or liqueur if necessary; the flavor should be quite pronounced as it will become muted after freezing.
2. Pass the mixture through a fine mesh strainer to remove any clumps, and then freeze in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions. The texture will be slightly grainy. For the best flavor, the gelato should be eaten the same day.
