Peach Ice Cream



We bought 12 luscious peaches and they were ripening quickly, so we decided to make ice cream. This is the full fat, full flavor ice cream, no fake stuff here. I have to say it is the best ice cream I have ever eaten! Live a little and try it!

It tastes so fresh and summery, I highly recommend it!

Ingredients
2 cups finely chopped ripe peaches
3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons lemon juice (the juice from 1/2 a lemon)
2 large eggs
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups heavy cream or whipping cream
1 cup milk

Directions

1 Combine the peaches, lemon juice and 3/4 cup of sugar in a bowl.

2 Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours, stirring every 30 minutes.

3 Remove the peaches from the fridge and drain the juice into another bowl and set aside.

4 Return the peaches to the fridge.

5 Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes.

6 Slowly whisk in 3/4 cup of sugar until completely blended.

7 Add the cream and milk and whisk to blend and then add the peach juice and mix until completely blended.

8 Pour into your ice cream maker and freeze according to the ice maker's directions.

9 When the ice cream is almost frozen (about 2 minutes before it is done) add the peaches and continue freezing until it is ready.

10 If your ice cream maker is anything like mine, you may need to put the ice cream into a container and let it finish freezing in the freezer.

I've been searching for peach ice cream ever since I had it at Ben & Jerry's in LA years and years ago (probably 15 or more) and I've never seen anything come close - this looks like it would exceed my expectations!
