Peach Ice Cream

So I really ought to wait until I have fresh local peaches for this, but I couldn't wait! LOL

If you aren't sure of the safety of your eggs, you may want to do a cooked-custard type recipe. I get fresh eggs from healthy, free chickens and don't really worry about salmonella.

Prep: 5 minutes
Freeze: 20 minutes
Makes: 1 quart

Ingredients
  • 2 eggs

  • 2/3 cup sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 cups heavy cream

  • 2 cups mashed, chopped, or puréed peaches


Directions

Using an electric mixer, combine egg and sugar until thick and cream-colored. Add cream, vanilla, and peaches. Mix well. Add to your ice cream maker and process according to directions. If you're using chunks of peaches, you may want to add them once the ice cream starts to thicken so they don't just settle to the bottom.

Soooooo yummy.

So, on Wednesday I bought an ice cream maker at the thrift store. I ♥ this little contraption. It's easy to use, works like it says it does, and lets me experiment to my heart's content. Plus, while some folks might dislike the fact that it will only make a quart of ice cream at a go, that's perfect for my little family.

The batch I made last night took a little longer to freeze - I returned it to the freezer in the bowl overnight and it was done this morning, but last night it was about the consistency of a thick slush.

Cappuccino Chocolate Ice Cream

Rich, creamy, and delicious. Needs no dressing up, at all.

Prep: 5 minutes
Freeze: 20 minutes
Makes: 1 pint

Ingredients
  • 1 egg

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1 cup heavy cream

  • 1/4 cup milk

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/2 cup strong coffee or espresso, refrigerated until cold

  • 1/2 chocolate bar, grated or chopped as you like (you could easily use chocolate chips here)


Directions

Using an electric mixer, combine egg and sugar until thick and cream-colored. Add cream, milk, vanilla, and coffee. Add to your ice cream maker and process according to directions, adding chocolate after ice cream has begun to freeze and thicken (so the chocolate won't all end up on the bottom).

Soooooo yummy.
