Dad's Peach Ice Cream Recipe

Dad's Peach Ice Cream Recipe

"MY DAD was the ice cream maker at our house. We had an old-fashioned freezer that had to be cranked by hand, and he took great delight in turning the handle until the ice cream was just right! With the addition of fresh fruit that he picked in a nearby orchard, this was a very special treat."
