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 ...
Original instruction just Google it .......
4 large peaches , peeled and pitted
