(NAPSA) - It's an age-old problem, how to keep your temperature down when the sun is high in the sky. Bottom line: Drink plenty of water, find some cool spots, eat chilled foods, and you'll be sure to enjoy the summer without breaking a sweat! Here are some tips for keeping cool and enjoying some of the summer's best treats, like this tasty hazelnut gelato.
Process hazelnuts, sugar and 1/2 cup cream in food processor to a shiny, liquid paste.
Bring milk and remaining cream to boil in medium saucepan. Remove from heat. Stir in hazelnut paste and egg yolks until blended. Cool.
Place sieve over deep bowl and line with double layer of cheesecloth. Pour cooled hazelnut cream mixture into sieve. Gather cheesecloth and squeeze cream into bowl. Stir in vanilla. Reserve mixture in cheesecloth for another use.*
Transfer cream to ice cream machine and follow manufacturer's directions. Transfer to container, cover and freeze.
* You will have about 3 cups of chopped hazelnuts in the cheesecloth. These can be frozen in 1/2- cup quantities and added to graham cracker crusts, stirred into yogurt, part mixed with flour for cookies or used in place of bread crumbs in burgers and meatloaf.
