Peach Ice Cream

Peaches are out and in season in Ontario and we should take advantage! Here is an ice cream recipe that you can easily make without an ice cream maker. Though if you do have an ice cream maker just pop this recipe in and follow the directions that came with it.

4 ripe peaches
1/2 cup each lemon juice and sugar
1 cup milk
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups heavy whipping cream

Wash and mash peaches. mix with lemon juice and first amount of sugar in a small air tight container. Chill in fridge for 2 hours.

Mix milk and sugar together, dissolving sugar in a wide air tight container. Metal mixing bowls work best as they freeze well, but plastic will work too. Add juices from peach mixture. Stir in heavy cream. Place in the fridge for one hour. Once chilled place in freezer for 30 minutes.

Beat with an electric mixer until smooth.

Place back into the freezer for 40 minutes. Then beat again. Repeat the 40 minute freezer, then beat cycle 3 times. The more you beat it the softer it will be. If you like hard ice cream feel free to freeze after the first time you beat it.

During your last session with the mixer, add the peaches. Usually after a couple of hours of freezing so they don’t just sink to the bottom.
