Peach (or Nectarine) Ice Cream
A summertime family favorite!
Ingredients: 2 cups fresh peaches or nectarines, peeled and diced
1 ¼ cup sugar
Juice from ½ a lemon
2 large eggs
3 cups Summerhill Goat Milk – best to use a fresh, unopened bottle
Directions: Mix peaches and ½ cup sugar and lemon juice together in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours, stirring every 30 minutes or so. When ready to prepare the ice cream, drain the liquid from the peaches into a small bowl. Return the peaches to the refrigerator. Save the juice. In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs for 1-2 minutes until light and fluffy. Whisk in ¾ cup sugar, ¼ cup at a time, until thoroughly mixed and fluffy. Slowly pour in Summerhill Goat Milk –(you want all those delicious lumps and clumps of cream to be included – it will make the ice cream richer and creamier). Continue whisking and slowly pour in the peach juice.
Freezing: Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer’s directions for freezing. Just before the ice cream is finished (with about 2 minutes to go) carefully add the diced peaches to the ice cream. If ice cream is too soft, place in freezer until it reaches the desired consistency.
Makes 1 quart.
