Well hello. As you can see from my recent lack of posts, things have not slowed down much at my house. I am going through serious crafting withdrawals. It’s been ages since I’ve had time to work on a project. All my free time has been spent in the kitchen trying to find ways to use up our abundance of produce. I’ve bottled salsa, frozen berries, and made all kinds of stuff with zucchini. And peaches. And green peppers. My kitchen is in a constant state of disarray. Fun times.
My latest peach creation was homemade peach ice cream. I made it the first time last week, but wasn’t quite satisfied with the results. I tweaked the recipe and came up with this version. One of the changes I made was to add more peaches, and a bit of lemon juice. We all agreed it was some of the best peach ice cream we’ve ever tasted. The almond extract is a perfect compliment to the peaches, but if you don’t have it I suppose you can use vanilla. 😉
Is there anything better on a hot summer day than homemade ice cream? I don’t think so.

I have a 1 and a half gal freezer. How many qts does this make? I need to know so I can make to adjust to my freezer.
What kind of cream? Most recipes call for heavy whipping cream.
I’ve used both heavy cream (36% or more fat) and whipping cream (30% fat) with good results. For ice cream, it’s a matter of preference.
Is this recipe for an electric ice cream maker?? The old fashion kind?
You can make it in any brand of ice cream maker, just follow the directions in your manual.
Found this recipe on Pinterest and decided to give it a shot this afternoon since I had ripe peaches on hand. AMAZING!!! The flavor was perfect- not overwhelming, not too sweet, just perfect. This is definitely a keeper recipe and rivals our local Peachy Paterno from the Penn State Creamery. Thanks for sharing!
So glad you liked it Erica! I cannot wait till our peaches are ripe!
What if you added some pie crust chucks to it? It sounds SSOOO good and refreshing!
Pie crust would be awesome. Especially graham cracker crust. Great idea!!
That sounds delish! I just bought one of those Cuisinart ice cream makers and I can’t wait to try your recipes in it! Thanks!
Funny you should post this, we are going to be making ice cream with the kids at camp. My sister bought me this “ice cream ball thingy” where you put the ingredients in and throw it back and forth and that mixes the ingredients.
I’ve had it for a couple years and keep forgetting to bring it to Girl Scout camp like I planned, so I’ll bring it to our camp instead. The grandkiddies will like it.
I’ve seen those before, but never tried them. They sure look fun!
And I was just trying to decide what kind of ice cream to make! I imagine that the almond extract makes this especially delicious!
You would add sweetened condensed milk 🙂 I bet it is delish!
Yep, sweetened condensed milk makes just about anything better. Love it!
OK, you MUST share this for tasty tuesdays. I’d love it.
Thanks for the reminder Alicia. I’ve linked up. 🙂
