Tuesdays with Dorie—Honey-Peach Ice Cream

Honey-Peach Ice CreamIt begins with a cow. And then a chicken. Followed by some fruit, bees and sugar cane. Whoever thought to put all these ingredients together and freeze them was brilliant.

We've been making lots of {smartie and kit kat} ice cream since buying a deluxe model ice cream maker, the Cuisinart Supreme Commercial Quality Ice Cream Maker - ICE-50BC, earlier this year and haven't purchased a tub from the grocery store since.

According to MakeIceCream.com, vanilla is the most popular flavor of ice cream at 29% followed by chocolate at 8.9%. Honey-peach wasn't in the top 15, but it was tasty.

Recipe

Makes about 1 quart (4 cups)

Honey-Peach Ice Cream ingredients
4 large ripe peaches (about 2 pounds), peeled and pitted
¼ cup honey
1 cup whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
3 large egg yolks
½ cup sugar
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

You can find the recipe for Honey-Peach Ice Cream in the book Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan. To see how the rest of the TWD group fared with this week's recipe, click here and then click on each blogger! Thanks to Tommi of Brown Interior who chose the recipe for this week and will post the recipe.

Honey-Peach Ice CreamTasting Notes
This ice cream was popular at our house. Though I found it a little subtle, everyone else loved it. I think it would be nice with a touch more peach flavor.

For a popular vanilla and coffee ice cream recipe, see Crème glacée vanilla (Vanilla ice cream) and Glace au café (Coffee ice cream).

Recipe for Next Week (June 23)
Andrea of Andrea In The Kitchen chose Coconut-Roasted Pineapple Dacquoise on pages 293-295.

    MMM. I have a thing for peach ice cream. But don't get it enough. I gave up on our little cuisinart maker and passed it on to a more appreciative home, but cast longing eyes at the commercial one...perhaps one day. Thanks for sharing those great pics, and reminding me this recipe is in Dorie's cookbook.

    I like the cow, chicken, description. Did you mention bee? :) I agree about the taste. I used six peaches and it was still subtle. I might double the peaches next time.

    Your ice cream looks beautiful. I have had my ice cream maker for a few years, yet I am still surprised at how easy it is to make ice cream every time I do it.

    Annette said...

    Oh, I have ice cream maker envy! Does it work a lot better than the kind that you freeze the bowl? Your ice cream looks delicious! We like it at our house too.
