Homemade Peach Ice Cream RECIPE

Homemade Peach Ice Cream

I'm doing a new series on Sundays about "The Fruit of the Spirit" - you see, when one becomes a Christian they are filled with the Holy Spirit.  As a result, there are certain characteristics that overflow from a Christian's life (like love, joy, kindness etc).

I decided that during the week after each "Fruit of the Spirit" post I will feature the actual fruit that I symbolically used for that characteristic.  Most recently we studied "PEACE" (click HERE to read the entire post "Fruit of the Spirit #3 - PEACE").  Today, I am featuring one special recipe using PEACHES - (this was the fruit that I used as a symbol of PEACE).

Many people dislike eating peach skins because of the fuzzy texture but peach skins are so full of flavor - so in this recipe I make a peach juice from the skin that is then added into the ice cream.

Begin by making the Peach mash & Peach Skin Juice
4 peaches - rinsed, peeled (SAVE the peelings), discard the pit & mash the sliced peaches with a potato masher (4 peaches should equal 1 cup mashed peaches)

peach peelings from the step above
1/2 cup water

In a medium saucepan bring the peach peelings and water to a boil and then turn down to a low simmer.  Simmer for about 20 minutes and then strain.  Add the peach juice to the peach mash (see the collage above).  Set the juice/mash aside until later.

Now continue onto making the custard.

1 cup sugar
1/3 cup corn starch
2 cups milk
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 egg yolks
dash of sea salt

In a large mixing bowl combine the egg yolks & half of the sugar (1/2 cup sugar) - whisk together until the sugar is combined & the yolks are a little frothy (see top left picture) - set aside until later. 
In a saucepan combine the other half of the sugar (1/2 cup sugar), dash of salt and the corn starch.  Stir until mixed.  Now add the milk, whipping cream & vanilla extract (add this into the corn starch/sugar mixture).  Stir gently with a whisk making sure that there are no sugar/starch clumps.  Place this full saucepan on medium heat and stir gently all the time while cooking.  Continue cooking until this mixture starts to thicken - remove from heat (see picture above right). 

It's time to temper the egg yolk mixture.  Pour about 1/3 of the hot milk/cream mixture into the egg yolk/sugar mixture and whisk when adding the hot mixture.  Your eggs have now been tempered.  Now add the tempered egg mixture into the remaining hot milk/cream mixture (stirring all the time).  Place back on medium/low heat and cook (stirring all the time) for about 2 to 3 minutes.

Allow the hot custard to rest for about 5 minutes.  Then strain through a sieve to get rid of any clumps of any kind.

Now it is time to add the peach juice/mash (the juice/mash that you had set aside from the first step).  See picture above.  Completely stir the juice/mash into the custard (see picture below).

Chill the custard in the fridge for at least 2 hours.

Process the chilled mixture in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions

Serve & ENJOY!
