Reviews forDad's Peach Ice Cream
"Made this today. Best ice cream recipe I have found. Reminds me of childhood summer memories from a few decades ago. Thank you for sharing this.I had to try it because of the name.Recipe doesn't list cooking temps. Medium for heating milk medium-low after eggs are added. Recommend cooking the 10 minutes or so while stirring.Well worth the effort."
"WOW this is REALLY, REALLY Yummy.....I used a soup ladel to transfer the hot mix into the eggs...I'm not left-handed so it was a little tricky...well worth the steps!!!"
