Finally, peach ice cream

Postby msnflyer » Sun Jun 26, 2011 9:00 pm

I've attempted peach ice cream many times, both homemade and commercial. None ever tasted much like peaches. Had 4 dead ripe cling stones on the counter so thought I'd try again.

Using Ben & Jerry's basic ice cream batter with all half and half, added almond extract. Peeled and cut the peaches, macerated them in a bit of sugar for a couple of hours. Drained the juice from the peaches and pureed them with a little more almond extract. When the ice cream was almost frozen added the peaches. Let it sit in the freezer for a couple hours and then, success! Lots of peach flavor, a blush of color, and even though it was a bit icey I enjoyed it, as did the neighbors.

It was a great finish to the asparagus mushroom risotto.

I like to eat peach Ice cream, I make this recipe...
2 1/2 pounds fresh peaches - peeled, pitted and chopped
1/2 cup white sugar
1 pint half-and-half cream
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups whole milk, or as needed..

Puree peaches with the sugar and half-and-half in batches in a blender or food processor.
In a gallon ice cream freezer container, mix together the peach mixture, sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, and vanilla. Pour in enough whole milk to fill the container to the fill line, about 2 cups.
Follow the manufacturer's instructions to freeze the ice cream.

I wish I had an ice cream maker - but I was able to buy some Sassy Cow peach ice cream - and it was great.

As far as the "pure" flavors go (i.e. no candy, nuts, etc. added) I would probably go:

1) Pumpkin
2) Peach
3) Banana

Peach sounds pretty good right about now though. I don't have the patience to get beyond letting some fresh peach slices sit in some sugar for a while, and just plopping some vanilla on top of it.

ah, the heck with the self-sufficiancy stuff, get yourself a peach ice cream at the Chocolate Shoppe, its really good. Relax. If you're lucky they'll have some Door County Cherry, which is even better.

Making ice cream and churning butter is for people in strict religous sects.

Then I won't tell you I canned peaches and pickled green beans. The pancakes at my house are always scratch made but the maple syrup's from Vermont, not Wisconsin.

I've been fighting the urge to bake bread until the weather cools a bit.
