First you taste the peaches, then you taste the honey. It’s like two flavors in one ice cream, and they are both happy, sentimental flavors, that make you think of home and summer.
I especially like the chunks of peaches you get with each bite. This is fairly straight forward recipe to an all-time favorite southern treat. Peach ice cream always makes me think of the time we first moved into this neighborhood and the couple across the street invited us and another couple over for homemade peach ice cream. It’s just one of those simple desserts that says “hospitality.”
My New Cuisinart
I knew this recipe was coming up and it was the perfect excuse to buy an ice cream machine. The new machine is a Cusinart stainless with red accents which matches my red toaster, red teapot and one day my red kitchen aid. For some reason, red accents are sexy in a kitchen.
4 large ripe peaches
1/4 cup honey
1 cup whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
I found the ice cream to be on the sweet side, and next time I might cut the sugar by half or cut it out altogether. We could taste the “cream” and for our taste buds, it was too rich.
