Peach season has arrived! Anytime the subject of peaches comes up, my husband always talks about two recipes that he grew up enjoying that his Nana made…peach ice cream and peach cobbler. We went to a local produce stand and stocked up on peaches, and he went to the store and bought an ice cream maker. So, here we go!
After going to the grocery store and loading up on other ingredients, I mentioned how I wanted to try this out and put it on the blog…so he asked if I wanted to make it. Of course! I got to work with peeling and slicing the peaches. Chunks of fruit really isn’t my thing when it comes to desserts, but I love the flavor from real fruit…so I pureed the peaches before throwing the mixture into the bowl of ingredients.
This was definitely a group effort with making this ice cream. I prepared all of the ingredients and mixed everything together, my husband packed the ice cream maker full of ice and rock salt, and checked on it during the churning process. It definitely took more than 30-45 minutes, I’ll say that. But when it was done…perfection. Creamy, thick, delicious. He ended up eating two bowls, and I had to call my mom to tell her how good it was.
There were several recipes, but this is the one he found on www.cooks.com
