Peach Soft-Serve Ice Cream
This creamy soft-serve dessert should be eaten right away, not stored in the freezer for future consumption. Use only the best, ripest, juiciest, most fragrant peaches for best flavor. It can only help if you pick them yourself.
4 soft, fragrant, ripe peaches (about 2 pounds), peeled and pitted
1 c milk
1/2 c whipping cream or half-and-half (not ultra-pasteurized)
1/3 c sugar
2 tsp best-quality vanilla extract
Place peaches and sugar in a blender or food processor; process to a puree. Combine with remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Chill in refrigerator until cold through, about 1 hour.
Pour peach mixture into an ice-cream freezer; freeze according to manufacturer's instructions. Serve immediately to your adoring, salivating fans. Makes six 3/4 cup servings.
