Peach Ice Cream Recipes
(Guest Post by Susanne Meyers)
It’s peach season and there’s nothing better than a nice bowl of homemade peach ice cream. Here are two of my favorite recipes.
Traditional Southern Peach Ice Cream
- 6 eggs
- 3 1/2 cups white sugar
- 10 fresh peaches
- 4 cups heavy cream
- 2 cups half-and-half cream
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
Start by preparing your peaches. You want to wash them, pit them and then peel them. Last but not least, cut them into chunks so they’ll fit in your blender or food processor. Process them until you have a fine puree.
Get out a large bowl add the eggs. Give them a good whisk, and then add the sugar. Whisk them until you get a pale yellow, smooth mixture. Stir in 5 cups of the peach puree along with the cream, half and half, vanilla and salt.
If you have an ice cream maker, pour it in and process according to the manufacturer’s instructions. I find it helps to chill the ice cream mix in the fridge for about an hour before transferring it to the ice cream maker.
If you don’t have an ice cream freezer, put the bowl in the freezer. Take it out every 15 minutes and give it a good stirring. At first I continue to use my wire whisk. As the mixture starts to firm up, I switch to a large wooden spoon. You need to really stir well to get creamy ice cream, but it’s well worth spending a little elbow grease for this delicious homemade treat.
Quick and Simple Peach Ice Cream
If you don’t have an ice cream maker and don’t feel quite as ambitious, here’s a quick and easy peach ice cream recipe. You just need a blender or food processor to make this.
- 2 cups frozen peaches (sliced)
- 1/2 cup of sugar (or more to taste)
- 1 cup heavy cream
Pour the peaches in your food processor or blender. Add the sugar and about half of the cream and start processing. If your blender has a hard time you may want to add a little more cream. Serve as soon as you have a smooth ice-creamy mixture, or put it back in the freezer for up to a week.
