Fresh Peach Ice Cream
Makes 6 cups
3-4 medium peaches, peeled and pitted
1 cup whole milk
1 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 T. vanilla extract
Add the peeled and pitted peaches to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. In a medium bowl mix the peach puree, milk, sugar, salt, heavy cream, and vanilla extract together until the sugar dissolves. Add the ice cream mixture to your ice cream maker and process according to manufacturer’s directions.
I use a Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker that you just freeze the canister the ice cream is made in. It takes about 15 minutes to make ice cream with no salt and ice to mess with. I love it!
If you like a harder ice cream, put the ice cream in a freezer container and cover. Let it freeze for at least 2 hours and then let it sit for 10 minutes on the counter before serving. The ice cream straight out of the maker is just like soft-serve. Out of the freezer it is like store-bought.
Disclosure: I don’t work with/for Cuisinart, I just love their ice cream maker.
