Homemade Peach Ice Cream
Permitted use provided by: MissHomemade.com
This fresh peach recipe is just dreamy on a hot day. It makes a light and tasty ending to a beautiful meal, like my Pan Fried Grouper recipe.
- 1-1/2 cups fresh pureed peaches (4-6 peaches)
- 1/2 cup fresh peaches, chopped
- 2/3 cup white sugar
- 1-1/2 cups heavy cream
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp almond extract
- pinch of cinnamon
In a blender, puree the peaches. Peeling them is optional. Blend in the remaining ingredients and process until really smooth. Chill the mixture until cold, or 1-2 hours.
Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer's instructions. It may be necessary to continue the "chill/beat" cycle for 15-30 minutes after the first cycle stops. Add the chopped peaches about 5 minutes before it is done.
NOTE: Since fresh peach ice cream is very soft, it may be necessary to let it "ripen" in your ice cream maker for an additional 45 minutes (or place in a bowl in freezer, if you prefer a firmer ice cream).
