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.

    PEACHES! Personally I belive that the fruit that tempted Eve was a peach. What fruit is more seductive than a perfectly ripe, warm and fuzzy peach that drips juice down your arm? To make them into icre cream almost guilds the lily.

    In the last few years I have read that it is necessary to cook (heat until mixture coats a spoon) the egg mixture for ice cream to be sure eggs are safe to eat. I made a lot of ice cream without cooking in years past, but now I worry about serving raw eggs and making someone sick. What do you think??

      I was the same way. We all used raw eggs in everything for years then “they” started saying there is no way you can use raw eggs. It was one of those things that caught on and I believe made way more of a big deal then really was necessary. I always kept using them myself with no problem at all. Now guess what like so many things they are saying you can use them just fine as long as the are fresh. Martha Stewart and many well known chefs use and push using them all the time.
      There is a chance you could get something from them but really no more so then anything else. A person has equal amount of chance of getting something from eating out or eating many other foods but that doesn’t mean everyone has stopped eating out.

      We are strange creatures. I hear someone going on and on about how she can’t believe you would feed your child an egg because it is unhealthy and they could die from it but she then puts her kids in the car, speeds, uses her phone and drinks her tea all while driving and tailgating in bumper to bumper traffic. Her chances of getting killed in a car wreck is 10 times better then from eating a raw egg.

      Bottom line is I still use raw eggs and in all the many many people I know I have never known any to be hurt by raw eggs. Boy I can’t wait to get the comments from this answer :) but this like many other wives tales and myths it can take decades and sometimes centuries to finally lay them to rest and use common sense.
