Q1. What is the difference between gelato and ice cream?
There are three main differences between gelato and ice cream: fat content, overrun (air), and serving temperature. Ice cream has anywhere from 10-20% butterfat, while gelato has 0-8%. Ice cream, on average, contains 50% air, while gelato contains only about 20%. Less air means gelato has an all-around more dense and creamy texture than ice cream. Gelato is also best served at a slightly warmer temperature (5-10 F) than ice cream (0-5 F), which allows it to fully cover the palette and create a more intense flavor profile.
Q2. Is Frisky Cow Gelato made with high-fructose corn syrup?
A. No! All ingredients in our gelato are all natural, including pure cane sugar. We make our own flavors sourcing the ingredients from as local as possible. For example, our Coffeehouse Chip is made from a blend of coffee that comes from Prime Roast in Keene, NH.
Q3. Where does the milk used to make Frisky Cow Gelato come from?
All of the milk in our gelato comes from Stonewall Farm in Keene, NH. It is 100% USDA organic, fully pasteurized and free of artificial growth hormones and antibiotics. Stonewall Farms’ thirty Holstein and brown Swiss cows are raised humanely and can often be found grazing in the pasture. Stop by for a visit!
Q4. Where can I find a Frisky Cow Gelato scoop shop?
Frisky Cow Gelato is scooped from a traditional Italian display case in the farm store at Stonewall Farm from April-October each year.
Q5. Where can I purchase take home containers of Frisky Cow Gelato?
Four oz. cups and 16 oz. pints of Frisky Cow Gelato can be found in the Monadnock Food Co-op, as well as a few other select retailers, such as Roy’s Market in Peterborough. Visit our partners page for the complete list of places where you can purchase our products.
Q6. Can I purchase Frisky Cow Gelato for an event?
Yes, you can! Our gelato bar/cart can easily be set up for any event, such as weddings or parties. Gelato is the new cake, so think about it for your next special day!
Q7. What is sorbetto?
Sorbetto is the Italian word for sorbet, and it is made using water instead of milk. This means that sorbetto contains 0% butterfat, and is considered to be dairy free!
