This Handmade Peach Ice Cream is rich, creamy, and bursting with the sweet flavor of ripe peaches. It’s a treat that everyone will love, and it’s surprisingly simple to make. Here’s how you can create this delicious dessert in your own kitchen.

Ingredients:

  • 3 medium peaches, peeled and sliced (about 2 cups) ๐Ÿ‘
  • 1ยผ cup granulated sugar, divided ๐Ÿง‚
  • ยฝ teaspoon lemon juice ๐Ÿ‹
  • ยผ teaspoon salt ๐Ÿง‚
  • 5 large egg yolks ๐Ÿฅš
  • 1ยฝ cups heavy cream ๐Ÿฅ›
  • 1ยฝ cups whole milk ๐Ÿฅ›
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract ๐ŸŒฟ

Instructions:

Step 1: Prepare the Peaches

  1. Skin the peaches – To easily remove the skin, blanch the peaches quickly in boiling water, then cool them in ice water. The skin should come off easily with your fingers.
  2. Slice the peaches and toss them in a large bowl with ยฝ cup of sugar and lemon juice. Let them macerate at room temperature for 30-45 minutes until they release their syrup and become soft. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฅ„

Step 2: Mash and Strain the Peaches

  1. Once the peaches are soft, mash them until they are pulped. Ensure there are no chunks left, as they can freeze too hard.
  2. Strain the pulped peaches and reserve the liquid in a separate bowl. Refrigerate both the liquid and the pulped peaches until ready to use. โ„๏ธ

Step 3: Make the Custard Base

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the cream, milk, ยฝ cup of sugar, and salt. Heat over medium-low heat until hot, but not bubbling. ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿฅ„
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and remaining ยผ cup of sugar until light in color, about two minutes.

Step 4: Temper the Eggs

  1. While whisking, slowly pour ยฝ cup of the hot cream mixture into the egg yolk and sugar mixture to temper the eggs. This prevents the eggs from scrambling.
  2. Slowly add another ยฝ cup of hot cream, whisking constantly. ๐Ÿณ๐Ÿ”„

Step 5: Finish the Custard

  1. Pour the tempered egg yolks back into the saucepan with the remaining custard base.
  2. Stir gently with a wooden spoon for 2-4 minutes, or until the mixture reaches 170-175 degrees and is thick enough to coat the back of the spoon. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract. ๐Ÿฎ๐ŸŒฟ

Step 6: Chill the Custard

  1. Strain the custard base through a fine mesh strainer into a clean bowl. Stir in the reserved peach liquid and refrigerate for 4 hours, until thoroughly chilled. โ„๏ธ

Step 7: Churn the Ice Cream

  1. Pour the chilled peach ice cream base into your ice cream maker and churn for about 25-30 minutes.
  2. Add the reserved pulped peaches during the last 30 seconds of the churning process. ๐Ÿฆโฑ๏ธ

Step 8: Serve and Enjoy

  1. Once the ice cream reaches a firm consistency, serve immediately or store in the freezer for later enjoyment. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿจ
