"Since moving to an area where fresh peaches are plentiful, I've made this frosty treat frequently," writes Mary Dixson of Decatur, Alabama. "It's the perfect light dessert. Calorie-conscious guests always say 'yes' to this when they might decline a slice of cake or pie."
Adding peaches to a mouthwatering vanilla ice cream recipe I got from my mother-in-law resulted in this fabulous flavor. My boys say it's the greatest and think it tastes best served outdoors under a shade tree!—Lisa Tenbarge, Haubstadt, Indiana
"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."
"When peaches are in season, we order them by the bushel," says Stephanie Nohr of Cornell, Wisconsin. "This quick and creamy frozen treat has wonderful fresh fruit flavor. It's a big hit with everyone in my family."
"I first tried this recipe to serve at my grandparents' 50th anniversary celebration—it was a wonderful way to top off an already delicious event," recalls Jenni Anderson of Bullhead City, Arizona. "Everyone really appreciated the homemade treat."
South Carolina is one of the leading producers of peaches. Luckily, we live only 3 miles from a large peach orchard. This ice cream is one of my most popular uses for the luscious fruit. We can hardly wait for the harvest so we can enjoy it.
