Ice Cream

After being extremly disappointed in myself for thinking I could accept FALL already,
I decided to fight back.
I kinda forgot all about peaches.
Peaches are the last hope for summer.
There is nothing better than peaches and cream...and a little bit of sugar!
Well, this recipe isn't for peaches and cream...and a little bit of sugar...
but ironically it calls for...
peaches and cream and a little bit of sugar!
Of course, it is very versatile,
meaning you can change out the fruit
for whatever is in season.
And right now, it is the peach.
The fruit that has waited all summer long to be enjoyed!

1 quart cream (or half and half)
3 cups sugar
juice of 3 lemons
2 cups peaches
milk to finish
In ice cream maker bowl,
combine cream and sugar and stir until sugar is dissolved.

Add lemon juice.

With the fruit,
if you want to have larger chunks of fruit in your ice cream,
I would suggest cutting them into very small pieces.
If you do not want chunks of fruit in your ice cream,
cut up the fruit and mash with a potato masher or pastry cutter.
Add fruit and then add milk until you reach the fill line of your bowl.
The secret to getting your ice cream to freeze fast is salt.
Make sure that you are adding salt inbetween the layers of ice.
Also, pour some water over the ice and salt in your ice cream maker
to make the ice a little colder.
(thanks to Uncle Kelly for the ice tip!)
Make sure that you are checking the ice levels often.
Tonight, mine only took 30 minutes
when it has taken between 40-50 minutes to freeze.
Enjoy and savor the last days of summer...while they last!
