Fior di Latte Gelato

In Italian, fior di latte is a figure of speech (flower of milk) indicating something made with cow’s milk of the highest caliber, like mozzerella. In this case, it refers to gelato in its purest form: no eggs, no fruit, no chocolate, or even vanilla—just pure dairy. For that reason, it’s vital to use the freshest, most flavorful milk and cream, from grass-fed cows. It’s a perfect excuse to splurge on a few bottles from a local dairy, but if that’s not an option there are a few national brands that are more than adequate to the task (see note).
