Fresh Peach Ice Cream

 This good old fashioned homemade ice cream, with pureed fresh peaches, makes a creamy dessert that is not too sweet, but perfectly delicious.   Choose peaches that are soft to the touch, but not bruised (if they are, cut out the brown areas) and smell fragrant for best results.  See tip at bottom for making this all year long.

***If you have a surplus of fresh peaches, puree 5-6 peaches and pour into a ziplock freezer baggie. Place on a cookie sheet and place in the freezer to freeze flat. Place in a larger baggie to store for a few months. When ready to use, thaw the baggie of peach puree in the refrigerator and use as directed above for fresh peach ice cream any time of the year.

      Hello Brittany! After some research, I found that there is about 1/2 cup of puree in a peach. I would say you could use 2 1/2 to 3 cups of puree. Will you please let us know the amount you used and how it turned out? I think what you are doing is a fabulous idea! It makes storing fresh peach puree so much easier and takes less space to make this delicious ice cream in the winter! Thank you for your question. Friends, Carrie
