The first concept of homemade gelato in Latin America, a sorbet, was developed by indigenous people during the Inca civilization in Ecuador. These people used to walk to the ‘Imbabura’ volcano bringing packs of ice, which were carefully placed between (grassy) vegetation called “paramo straw” or “frailejon”; they would also use rock salt to prevent the ice from melting. After they settled everything, they poured into a big pot made out of bronze called “paila” fruit juice and sometimes milk; the liquid was stirred quickly until frozen and in just a matter of minutes, they got a fresh, handmade gelato similar to a sorbet.
