seeing as i am heading north to my favorite peach orchard again today, you will have to suffer through at least a couple more peach postings. my sincerest apologies to those who are crazy and don't love peaches. to everyone else, read on for a fantastic peach ice cream recipe.
last night was no exception. my mother is crazy about peaches in general (hey, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, right?) so i packed up the dogs, my cuisinart, and some peaches and headed over to her house to whip up a batch of peach ice cream for the two of us.
well, not every bite. surprisingly enough, we didn't eat the whole batch ourselves. little victories.
1 1/2 cups pureed peaches (about 4 medium peaches, skinned and chopped)
1/2 cup sugar
pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
3/4 cup whole milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
puree peaches in blender. add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. refrigerate for an hour. blend one more time before pouring into ice cream maker and follow manufacturers instructions. transfer soft ice cream to airtight container and freeze for 1-2 hours before serving.
