Peach Ice Cream

Nothing says Summer like fresh peach ice cream! We have partnered with Pearson Farms to bring you this swoon worthy peach ice cream recipe! I grew up picking peaches with my mother, Ida. We would bring home baskets of peaches every summer. Not only did we love eating a warm peach picked from the tree, but we would freeze and can peaches to make treats all year!

Now, we get our peaches from Pearson Farms! From their farm to our table, these peaches get delivered all summer! And we love making so many delicious recipes with them!

For more than 135 years, the land we know as Pearson Farm has supported the growth of authentic Georgia-grown peaches and pecans as well as the growth of the five generations of family that pioneered it. The core elements remain the same today – good soil, hard work, honest dealings, family and faith.

This peach ice cream has layers of flavor! There is peach juice in the ice cream. Pieces of peaches are stirred in. And a swirl of peaches thru the middle! So much peachy love!

Peach Ice Cream


Ingredients

Scale

Ingredients

 

Peach Puree

  • 4 fresh peaches peeled and sliced
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup water

Fresh peaches

  • 34 medium-size peaches, peeled and diced small (about 2 cups)
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon lemon juice

Custard Base

  • 6 egg yolks
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 ¼ cups whole milk
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla

 


Instructions

Instructions

Peach Puree

Combine the ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Simmer until the peaches have begun to break down. Pulse with a hand blender until smooth and simmer for another 10 minutes. Transfer the peaches to a bowl. Press cling wrap onto the peaches and allow to cool.

Fresh Peaches

Toss diced peaches with sugar and lemon juice in a bowl. Allow to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes until a syrup forms. Pour the peach mixture into a fine mesh strainer and allow juices to drain into a bowl. Allow to drain for 30 minutes. Pour the drained peaches in a bowl, press cling wrap tightly onto the top and refrigerate. Save the liquid.

Custard Base

Whisk together the egg yolks and ¼ cup sugar until light in color. In a saucepan whisk together the cream, milk, remaining ½ cup of the sugar, and the salt. Heat over medium-low heat until bubbles appear around the edges of the pan. Whisking constantly, slowly pour in ½ cup of the hot custard base into the egg yolks to temper the eggs. Add an additional ½ cup of hot custard base, continuing to whisk the entire time.

Pour the tempered egg yolks into the saucepan with the rest of the custard base and whisk for 3-4 minutes, or until the temperature is between 170-175. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla. Strain the custard base through a fine mesh strainer into a clean bowl. Stir in liquid from the fresh peaches and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

 

Pour the custard into ice cream maker and churn according to manufacturer’s instructions, until it looks like soft-serve ice cream. Add the reserved fresh peaches during the last minute. Move ½ of the custard to an airtight container. Spoon ½ of the peach puree evenly over the custard. Layer the other ½ of the custard on top and spread the remaining puree on top. Using a knife, gently swirl the puree into the custard. Do not over mix. Cover and freeze at least 6 hours until ready to eat.

    This ice cream has to be the best ever – it is made from a recipe developed by some of the most imaginative and wonderful cooks ever, and it is made with the peaches from my favorite orchard – Pearson Farms in Fort Valley, Ga!! Living away from my home state – I don’t miss out on the taste of summer because their peaches arrive each week and are just as if I had picked them myself!!!
    This will become a summer staple at our house and we already have the peaches!!!

      We are so grateful for our friendship with you and Don. You were the one that introduced me to Pearson Farms Peaches!! We are life long fans! I love the heritage of this company! 1885 is when they started this farm, and they have been serving up peaches and peach products since then! We can’t wait to share another peach recipe with y’all!

    I look forward to peach season all year!! I love that this means I can save some of that sweet peachy summer goodness in my freezer.

      Sarah,

      Right? I went to orchards to pick peaches with my mom growing up. We would not only eat the fresh peaches right off the tree, but my mom would can, and freeze the peaches so we could have them year round! We hope you get a chance to give this recipe a try!
