{Fresh Peach Ice Cream}

I love my Ice Cream maker, and I absolutely love fresh peaches. The two combined are heaven sent.

3 cups fresh peaches, skinned and chopped
3 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
1 cup of granulated sugar, divided
1 cup of ice cold whole milk
2 cups of ice cold heavy cream
1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract

Combine the peaches with 1/2 cup of the sugar and the lemon juice. Stir and allow to macerate for 2 hours. Strain, but reserve the juice. Remove half of the peaches and mash well. Set aside the reserved juice, the mashed peaches and the remaining chopped peaches.

In a small bowl whisk together (or use a hand mixer) the milk and the sugar until the sugar is completely dissolved. Stir in the cream, vanilla, reserved juice and mashed Peaches. Do not add the chopped peaches yet!  Stir until mixture is well incorporated.

Turn on the ice cream maker and pour the mixture into it. Add the chopped peaches to the ice cream in the last 5 minutes of churning.  Stop the machine in 25 minutes – mixture will be soft and creamy, like soft serve.  Place the ice cream into a freezer safe container to set for several hours, or overnight.
