Peach Ice Cream
It's peach season here in the east so you can make this YUMMY treat with "nature's candy," fresh peaches! I cut this recipe in half and there was still too much for my counter-top ice cream maker, so we get to make more tonight! But I bet this would be perfect if you have a big ice cream maker that takes ice and salt!
6 eggs, beaten
3 1/2 cups white sugar
10 fresh peaches, pitted and chopped
4 cups heavy cream
2 cups half-and-half cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3/4 teaspoon salt
In large bowl, mix together eggs and sugar until smooth; puree peaches in blender or food processor and stir 5 cups of puree into egg mixture. Stir in cream, half-and-half, vanilla and salt and mix well.
Pour mixture into freezer canister of ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.
(I wisked together the eggs, cream, half & half, vanilla and salt in a bowl. I put the chopped peaches and sugar in the blender and then poured some of the milk mixture in to blend them all up.)
