Peach ice cream 1

Peaches and Cream Ice Cream

3 cups fresh peach chunks

1 ¼ cups sugar

2 cups heavy cream

1 cup whole milk

Seeds from 1 vanilla pod

Pinch salt

Pinch cinnamon

In a small sauce pan heat milk, cream, and sugar over low heat stirring frequently, until sugar is dissolved.  Remove pan from heat and pour milk mixture into a glass bowl.  Add remaining ingredients and cover the bowl before placing it in the refrigerator overnight.  Pour the cold milk mixture into electric churn and follow the instructions, most ice cream makers will churn for 20-40 minutes.  Remove the ice cream from the churn and place it in a covered glass or plastic container.  Place the container in the freezer to harden completely for at least 4 hours.

Note- This recipe is for a 2-quart electric ice cream churn and can easily be doubled for a larger churn.
