Colorado peach season is coming to a fast end! There are just a few more weeks left at local Colorado farmer's markets to grab you some of the famous Palisade peaches, and enjoy some homemade PEACH ICE CREAM!
Here at The PB Love Company, it's always ice cream season, though (we are fat kids at heart!) Especially if you have your own ice cream maker at home - trust us, it's a wise investment!
Here is a ridiculously delicious, and simple recipe for some homemade peach ice cream.
¼ c sugar
3 organic medium-sized, ripe peaches- pitted and peeled
½ tsp vanilla
1 ½ c organic heavy cream
1 c organic whole milk
¾ c sugar (up to 1 cup to taste)
¼ tsp salt
6 egg yolks (pasture-raised)
- Peel and slice peaches, place in a bowl with ¼ cup of sugar and let sit 20 minutes, to release the juices. Take a stick blender, or potato masher, and blend the peaches and sugar together. Add the vanilla.
- Blend the sugar and egg yolks in a saucepan and whisk until lightened in color. Add in the milk, cream, and salt. Heat on medium until the mixture bubbles slightly and thickens, stirring or whisking as needed. Add in the blended peach mixture, and cook a little longer, to melt the sugar.
- Remove ice cream base from heat and pour into a bowl. Chill base thoroughly, either on an ice bath, or overnight in the fridge. Follow your ice cream makers directions for freezing.
For variety: try oven-roasting or grilling the peaches. This will dry them out slightly (less water in the mixture will make the ice cream creamier) and add a richer flavor.
Or brown 1 stick of organic butter in a pan and let cool. Blend in the melted, browned butter into the peach mixture.
This peach ice cream recipe is great when paired with our pure, stone-ground Smooth Almond. Of course, this will be great with any of PB Love's stone-ground nut butters.
