Steps in making Caramel Hazelnut Gelato ice cream
Pour hazelnuts and whole milk in a skillet and heat until very hot(Dont allow it to boil).
Remove from heat and set aside for at least 30 minutes.
Pour 1/2 cup evaporated cane sugar in another saucepan. Melt sugar under medium heat golden brown.
Remove from heat and quickly add the heavy cream. Place back on heat and simmer over medium heat then whisk to dissolve any hardened bits of caramel.
Add salt and strain the hazelnut milk into the pan. Set aside the nuts. Heat the liquid again until very hot if necessary
Whisk the remaining 1/4 cup sugar with the egg yolks until thick and light in color in a large bowl
Drizzle the hot cream mixture into the eggs a little at a time. Pour the entire mixture back into the saucepan.
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until the custard coats the back of a wooden spoon. Remove from heat and pour through a fine mesh sieve into a clean bowl.
Add vanilla extract. Allow the custard to cool a bit before covering with plastic wrap.
Chill for 30-45 minutes. Then churn in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer directions. During the last minute or 30 seconds of churning, add the reserved hazelnuts.
Transfer to airtight container and freeze until firm enough to scoop.
