Peach Ice Cream

The parade of peaches continues, but this time no clever play on names for this recipe, it’s just straight forward delicious.   I love this peach ice cream, and the part I love most is leaving small chunks of peaches for the final freeze.  The end result is great bits of frozen flavor nestled in the creamy mixture.  I’ve not prepared a no cook ice cream before.  When in the freezing stages it doesn’t set up as firm as a cooked version.  But fear not, after it’s been in the freezer for a while, it sets up perfectly.   This may be my favorite ice cream of the season.


6 eggs, beaten
3 1/2 cups white sugar
10 fresh peaches, pitted, peeled and finely chopped
4 cups heavy cream
2 cups half-and-half cream
2.5 teaspoons vanilla extract
3/4 teaspoon salt

  1. In large bowl, mix together eggs and sugar until smooth.
  2. Place diced peaches in a large bowl and mash a few times with a potato masher. You want to leave a few small peach chunks.
  3. Stir the peaches into the egg mixture. Stir in cream, half-and-half, vanilla and salt and mix well.
  4. Pour mixture into freezer canister of ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions.

  1. MMMMMM!!

  2. Oh, no…huge craving. We used to pick softball-sized peaches from our tree, my mom would put them and whatever else in an old wooden ice cream maker, my brothers and I would turn the handle while my dad burned the chicken on the grill…

    Can I come over and have some of that ice cream? I’m just flat-out inviting myself.

  3. A few years ago, the kids got me an ice cream maker for mother’s day. I made ice cream. Actually it was more like cream with giant ice crystals. I haven’t touched it since. I really should. Tell me I really should. ‘Cause peach ice cream sounds really really good right now.
