Peach Ice Cream Recipe
Ingredients
1 1/2 cup of Peaches (peeled, cut, pitted)
1/4 cup of sugar
1 tblsp of fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp vanilla extract

For the Custard
3 large egg yolks
1 pint (2 cups) Half and Half
1/4 cup sugar


1. In a medium bowl, mash the peaches until only small chunks of peach remain. Stir in the sugar, lemon juice, and vanilla extract. Let stand at room temperature while making the custard.


2. To make the custard: In a small bowl, beat the egg yolks with a fork until blended. In a medium saucepan, stir 1 cup of the half-and-half and the sugar over medium heat until mixture comes to a gentle boil.

 

Whisk about 1/2 cup into the yolks, then whisk the yolk mixture back into the saucepan. Whisk constantly over medium-low heat until mixture looks as if it's just about to boil, 1 to 2 minutes. (The eggs will be pasteurized at 160°F and will slightly thicken the half-and-half.)

3. Remove from the heat and immediately stir in the remaining 1 cup half-and-half.

4. Stir the custard into the peaches until well blended. Refrigerate for about 20 minutes.

5. Pour the custard into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions, or use still-freeze method (see below).

6. Serve right away or pack into an airtight freezer container and freeze up to 1 month.

Still-Freeze Method: Pour the prepared ice cream mixture into a metal loaf pan or 8-inch square baking pan. Cover with plastic wrap or foil and place in freezer. Freeze for 1 to 2 hours or until solid. Break the frozen mixture into pieces with a fork and spoon into a food processor or a large bowl. Process, or beat with electric mixer on medium-high speed, until soft but not melted.

 

Repeat the freezing and processing or beating 1 or 2 times, if desired for smoothness.

Tips
Battery Park is a cheese you should try. A South Carolina cross between a farmhouse cheese and a brie. This is Charleston Artisan Cheesehouse's flagship; a totally hand-made handsome cheese of approx. 12 oz.

This gourmet cheese is made with milk from a single-source, 250 year old family farm and handcrafted and aged in Charleston. A beautiful white bloomy rind covers a creamy cheese with a firm, even crumbly center. The flavor is earthy, grassy and fruity and the aroma is wonderfully fresh and lemony.

This Southern artisan cheese is great on crunchy bread, whole wheat toast and would be a winner as a baked brie.
