  • 4 whole medium sized fresh peaches peeled, pitted and chopped.
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 5 whole large egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  1. Place peaches in a bowl. Add 1/4 cup sugar and stir. Cove and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  2. In a saucepan, heat 1 cup heavy cream, 1 cup milk and 3/4 cup sugar and salt. Warm over medium heat, stirring often until the sugar has dissolved, 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat egg yolks. Take 1 cup of heated cream mixture and pour into whisked eggs. Pour in a slow steady stream while whisking eggs.
  4. Pour egg mixture back into remaining cream mixture. Reheat over medium heat for 5 to 8 minutes stirring often. You do not want this mixture to boil. Mixture will begin to thicken. You want it to be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. An instant read thermometer should read 175-180 F.
  5. In a large bowl, pour remaining 1 cup of cream. Place a fine strainer over top. Pour heated custard into strainer.
  6. Add vanilla.
  7. Cover and refrigerate until completely cooled, at least 4 hours or overnight.
  8. Strain peaches, reserving liquid.  Mix liquid into cooled custard mixture. 

  9. Place custard into an automatic ice cream maker. Follow directions for ice cream maker.
  10. During the last 3-5 minutes of churning, add peaches.
  11. Remove ice cream and place in freezer.
