I rephotographed an old favorite after making it again last week – homemade peach ice cream. It’s one of the best summertime treats and I couldn’t resist bringing your attention to it once again.
Summertime, to me, is my mom’s homemade ice cream! She would sit in the driveway or poolside and watch us play while the ice cream maker churned away, throwing salt in when needed. With Memorial Day weekend ahead and my new KitchenAid ice cream maker attachment, I couldn’t resist whipping up some peach ice cream. I’ve always enjoyed such a treat, but after visiting friends, Jenny Steffens
, in Concord, Massachusetts last year and having it at Bedford Farms, I was really craving it!
Feel free to garnish with cinnamon or brown sugar. For a unique twist, replace sugar in the recipe with brown sugar.
I like my ice cream a little lighter, which is why this recipe doesn’t use eggs, but if you like a really rich ice cream, swap 2 cups of the half and half for heavy cream!
Yields 2 quarts ice cream
