Contest-Winning Peach Ice Cream Recipe

Contest-Winning Peach Ice Cream Recipe

When peaches are in season, this recipe is at the top of my list to make. The pureed fruit lends a fresh flavor to the silky-smooth ice cream. You'll have to make it more than once, though, because the first batch never lasts long! -Toni Box Weaver, Alabama
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling Process: 20min./batch + freezing YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups half-and-half cream
  • 3-1/2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 4 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 6 to 8 medium peaches, peeled and sliced or 4 cups frozen unsweetened peach slices

Directions

  • 1. In a large saucepan, heat half-and-half to 175°; stir in the sugar and salt until dissolved. Whisk a small amount of hot cream mixture into the eggs. Return all to the pan, whisking constantly. Cook and stir over low heat until the mixture reaches at least 160° and coats the back of a metal spoon.
  • 2. Remove from the heat. Cool quickly by placing pan in a bowl of ice water; stir for 2 minutes. Stir in whipping cream and vanilla. Press plastic wrap onto surface of custard. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
  • 3. Place peaches in a blender, cover and process until pureed. Stir into the custard. Fill cylinder of ice cream freezer two-thirds full; freeze according to manufacturer's directions.
  • 4. Refrigerate remaining mixture until ready to freeze, stirring before freezing each batch. Allow to ripen in ice cream freezer or firm up in the refrigerator freezer for 2-4 hours before serving. Yield: about 3 quarts.

"I agree with the previous reviewer that this is a very rich ice cream, a little too rich for our taste. I will make it again but will cut down on the cream, using milk for at least half of it."
