I had some beautiful fresh peaches that I had frozen earlier in the season, and thought this would be a good time for homemade "Peaches & Cream" ice cream. Try this recipe, and let me know what you think. We thought it was yummy!!....Diana

5 fresh or frozen peaches (about 1 1/4 pounds)
1 cup granulated sugar (or to taste)
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 vanilla bean, slit open and scrape seeds out into ice cream mixture (optional)

In a large saucepan of boiling water, blanch the peaches for 1 minute and transfer them to a bowl of ice and water to stop the cooking process. Peel, pit, and slice the peaches in half. Puree the peaches in a blender or food processor. In a large bowl stir together the sugar, the milk, and the whipping cream, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the peach puree, the lemon juice, vanilla extract, and the vanilla bean seeds (optional). Freeze mixture in an ice cream freezer according to manufacturer's instructions. Makes about 1 1/2 quarts or 10 servings.

Note: After you have prepared the peach ice cream mixture, and BEFORE pouring it into the ice cream freezer, pour into bowl of an electric mixer, and with whisk attachment, whisk until mixture becomes creamier and has more volume. Then pour ice cream mixture into ice cream freezer and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions. This process will give your ice cream more volume when frozen. (this step is optional)

Enjoy this refreshing homemade ice cream!

Makes 1 1/2 quarts (10 servings).

Fresh summer flavor. I only added 1/2 cup sugar only because my family does not like things very sweet. But it needs something a sauce maybe. Otherwise very good!
