You know that cliche quote that starts off, “When life gives you lemons…” Well I don’t mean to delve into cliche but when your friend brings you juicy, ripe, fresh-smelling peaches from her pit stop in Georgia on her road trip, you make peaches and cream ice cream, or at least that’s the name for it, which I’ve conjured up and seems fitting.

Now you’ll note in the ingredients section that I specify to leave the skin on one of the peaches. I wanted the ice cream to have a strong peach flavor and a few specs of the darker flesh color for color sake and for a slight texture variance and it definitely worked. I also pan seared some slices of a 6th peach in honey so it would soak up all that gooey goodness and then sit atop this already unreal ice cream. Enjoy from my kitchen to yours as we put Georgia and it’s wonderful peaches on our minds and in our mouths.

Peaches and Cream Ice Cream

Ingredients

6 large ripe peaches, all pits removed, 4 peeled and 2 with flesh on
1 cup buttermilk
2 cups heavy cream
3/4 cup sugar
4 egg yolks

Prepare

1. Set one flesh-on peach to the side and run the rest of the peaches through a blender or food processor. The fruit has enough liquid to be pureed.

2. Slice one flesh-on peach into 8 slices and drizzle with honey. Pan sear the slices in a small pan, remove, and set aside.

3. Place pureed peaches in a small sauce pan and heat up until just beginning to fizz and bubble.

4. Whisk egg yolks in a small bowl and set aside.

5. Stir in sugar, heavy cream, and buttermilk into the small saucepan with the peaches until warm.

6. Remove from heat and slowly mix in a few tablespoons of the peach/cream mixture into bowl with eggs. Whisk vigorously. Continue to add the cream until completely incorporated.

7. Stir mixture back into saucepan and heat for 4-5 more minutes then remove from heat and place into fridge for 2 hours to cool.

8. Remove from fridge and process the mix into ice cream according to your ice cream machine’s manufacturer instructions.

9. Top ice cream with honey-peach slices and drizzle with additional honey if desired.

Go ahead…lean in a little closer…yes closer. You know you cannot resist!
