Karen Fouracre and Jaki Ayton of Fanny Bay will launch LegatoGelato, artisan gelato made with their own goat milk from their licensed dairy in Fanny Bay, Saturday at the Comox Valley Farmers Market.

"Our milk is tested monthly to ensure quality and is the best in B.C.," Ayton said. "Then we add local organic eggs, local sea salt, organic cornstarch and organic sugar. The gelato is mixed and pasteurized at Canadian Cultured Dairy Inc. in Royston which is the home of Tree Island Yogurt."

LegatoGelato has less fat and more flavour, and is made from local and/or organic ingredients.

"Next we add our secret recipe coulis, made with fresh, in-season fruit, organic sugar, organic lemon juice and cooked to perfection," Fouracre said. "We sell it in pints, single servings and a half-gallon size. We have a website with all our information as well and you can also order online."

The market runs from 9 a.m. to noon at the Native Son's Hall.

Karen and Jaki are excited to have the public try some samples and take home some LegatoGelato.
