Peach Ice Cream Recipe

Peach Ice Cream


  • 5 cups ripe peaches, peeled and chopped
  • 6 eggs, lightly beaten, at room temperature
  • 2-1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • dash of salt
  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 3 cups heavy cream (whipping cream)

Preparation Method

  • In a blender, purée 3 cups of the peaches.

  • Mash the remaining 3 cups of chopped peaches with a potato masher. Set aside.

  •  In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, flour, vanilla and salt until well blended. Set aside.

  • In a large, heavy saucepan over low heat, heat the milk and cream, just until it begins to steam.

  • Pour a little of the heated mixture into the egg and sugar mixture, and stir.

  • Then pour the bowl of egg/sugar/milk mixture back into the heavy saucepan.

  • Continue to cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is thick and smooth.

  • Remove from heat, and refrigerate the mixture for several hours or until well chilled.

  • Add the puréed peaches to the chilled mixture, stir well, and pour into a 5-quart ice cream freezer can.

  •  Turn on the ice cream freezer or crank it by hand for 5 minutes.

  •  Then, carefully remove the top of the can and the dasher, and add the reserved 2 cups of mashed peaches, mixing them in with a long spoon.

  • Put the dasher back in and the top back on, and continue freezing according to the manufacturer's directions.

  • Allow ice cream to ripen for at least an hour. Makes about 3-1/2 quarts.
