Peach Ice Cream


I've been checking out some US peaches at our local supermarket these past few days ....

No sightings yet but I've seen some big ones that costs $68 for 2 pieces pfffttttt

In fairness , those 2 are big but at that price forget it ! lol

I've been buying peaches at the wet market every summer but I never think of making some ice cream out of it .

I don't really know if those peaches are from China and compare to US peaches , are more hard/crunchier and good for snacking only , well , if it is sweet heh !

There were times when I'm lucky and bought some of it and it all turned out very sweet and a trek to the market again , bought some and then it tastes like cardboard tsk tsk It's rather hit and miss -__-'

So , another market foray , and there were loads of peaches and they look really good !

Bought some , thought of making some ice cream  , though only two tastes sweet but what's the purpose of sugar anyway ?! lol

Result ?! Okay lah ! But I want more PEACH flavor that only ripe , sweet and soft peaches can deliver ...


Recipe from The Perfect Scoop via the bookstore , copied the ingredients but didn't buy the book ...

Original instruction just Google it .......

4 large peaches , peeled and pitted
1/2 cup water
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup sour cream ( I used yogurt )
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
a few squeezed of fresh lemon juice ( I used half of a lime ) 

* Chop peaches and transfer to saucepan , add water , sugar and salt and cook for about 10 minutes
* Let cool and puree in the food processor ; add cream , sour cream , vanilla and lemon juice . Chill mixture in the fridge .
* Churn the mixture in the ice cream maker ; then transfer it to a freezer-proof container and freeze for at least 4 hours or overnight before serving .

  3. The peaches are gorgeous and your ice cream looks delicious! Peaches are way too expensive, so I used the canned ones to make ice cream! I made some ice cream (pumpkin pie ice cream) too today, well, it is in the process, the custard is cooling off in the fridge. We can never have enough of ice cream, can we? If we live nearby, we could have an ice cream party! Hehehe! :)

  9. Seriously?!?? I work at a grocery store, and some people here are like "yeah.. I don't want those peaches, that's a ridiculous price" when they buy two and they come to 4$. We are so spoiled here...

  10. I hope you can find some decent fresh peaches that aren't so outrageously expensive! I think canned is a good option...better than flavorless fresh. I love peach ice cream....mmmmmmm.
