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!
2 cups Peaches, chopped (I prefer peeled)
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
