Homemade Peach Ice Cream

Pin It

This ice cream was the bomb. 

In fact, I think it's some of the best peach ice cream I've tasted. 

So many recipes out there call for way too much sugar, for my taste. I don't like overly 
sweet ice cream because, I think the flavor of the ice cream itself gets lost. 
This has the perfect amount and the peach flavor really shines. 

Creamy and scrumptious,,,,,very yummy!

Homemade Peach Ice Cream

2 cups Peaches, chopped (I prefer peeled)
1 cup sugar
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 egg yolks

In a bowl combine peaches, 1/2 cup sugar and lemon juice. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours or overnight, stirring occasionally. Remove peach mixture from refrigerator and drain juice into a cup. Return peaches to refrigerator.

In a saucepan combine 1/2 cup sugar, heavy cream, milk and vanilla. Bring just to a boil.

In a small bowl, whisk egg yolks. While whisking, stream in about 1/3 of the boiled cream mixture. While whisking cream and sugar, stream back in the egg  mixture. Return to the heat and continue to heat while stirring. Mixture will thicken as it returns to a boil. Remove from heat and pour into a bowl. Add the reserved peach juice. Refrigerate until cold.

Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions. After the ice cream begins to stiffen, about half done, add the peaches and continue to freeze until done
