Summer Special Week 8 – Peach Ice Cream

Its the final chapter on the ice cream summer special series.

It has been a full summer of ice cream. We still have a freezer full of small containers with leftovers from several of the recipes we have tried, and I’m sure we will continue to enjoy them in the coming weeks. But, this one might be one of the best flavors yet.

South Carolina has some great peaches, and we really enjoy going to the farmer’s market and picking them up every weekend. So, making peach ice cream has been part of the plan for most of the summer. I am glad we saved it for the end because it turned out awesome.

In looking for the recipe for this weeks fair, I found a description that stated the author’s aunt had been making this for 60 years. Right then I knew it would be great. It was the first and only recipe I looked at.

Let’s get started.

Right off the bat we need to peel and pit some peaches. I had never tried to peel a peach, but I figured out a decent method. I sliced trough the skin longitudinally roughly 8 times, going just deep enough to keep the cut moving forward. Then I cut across the lateral plane 2 or 3 times depending on the size of the peach. This created small sections of skin which were easier to remove while retaining the fruit underneath. The Little Blue Mixer | Summer Special Week 8 - Peach Ice CreamAfter peeling and pitting 5 medium peaches we will find out, will it blend?

Actually, we need to add a few more ingredients – cream, sugar, eggs, and vanilla.

Pour this mix into your ice cream freezer. Pour a portion of the milk into the blender and pulse again to help remove all the goodness left in the mixer. Then add it to the freezer.

This style of ice cream with eggs and no cooking seems to mix/freeze better, and I honestly prefer the taste over some of the other styles I tried out this summer.

Yum! This really was a great way to end the summer of ice cream.

The recipe can be found here; it’s a good one.

I’m so glad I have been able to share these recipes and experiences with you all this summer. It has been a ton of fun. Big thanks to Anna for shooting all the photographs, they came out great even though ice cream is a tough subject.

Enjoy.

  1. It looks delicious! I love peaches but they are hard to find here in the UK as they are mostly imported – nothing like getting fresh fruit, grown just around the corner. I have made a lot of sorbets this summer, using sugar syrup and fruit, which was very successful overall. I’ll have to give this recipe a try – there’s nothing like trying our ice creams 😉
    Thanks for sharing these with us at Fiesta Friday, hope you’re enjoying your weekend!
