Rosie Makes Peach Ice Cream

Mr. Hawthorne and Good Neighbor Zippy drove up to Currituck the other day to get corn.  Besides a bushel of delicious corn, they came back with some of the sweetest, juiciest peaches I've ever had.

Peach ice cream was calling out to me.  And I obliged.

Rosie's Peach Ice Cream
4 egg yolks
2 cups whole milk
1/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
1 TB vanilla
2 cups heavy cream
2 cups chopped peaches
2 TB sugar

In a medium sauce pan combine milk, sugars, and vanilla.  Bring just to a boil.

Whip yolks until frothy and lemon-colored.  Temper the yolks by slowly whisking in a cup and then some of the hot milk mixture.  Pour egg mixture back into sauce pan and cook over medium low heat, whisking constantly, until mixture has thickened - about 4-5 minutes.  Chill.

Peel and chop peaches and toss with 2 TB sugar.  Cover and chill.

Drain peach juice into custard mixture.  Stir in heavy cream.  Pour into ice cream maker and process, scraping down the sides as needed.  When ice cream is almost done, stir in chopped peaches.

And enjoy some of the best ice cream ever.

Enjoy the taste of summer!
