What are Freestone Peaches?

Every summer, I'm chomping at the bit until the freestone peaches make their way up the mountain from South Carolina to our farmer's market. In my opinion, there's nothing like a freestone peach. They're sweeter, juicier, and just plain yummier.

Freestones are easy to eat and slice because they break away from the pit without any fuss. In contrast, a clingstone hangs on to the pit which makes it harder to work with if you're peeling lots of fruit.

You can find freestones throughout the states, but they're most popular in South Carolina and Georgia. In fact, you'll often see some produce marketed as 'Georgia Peaches' in the grocery stores. Always ask before you buy if you are looking specifically for freestones.

Recipe FAQS

Can frozen or canned peaches be substituted?

Yes, frozen peaches may be used and work well in this recipe. Canned peaches fall apart faster when churned, but can also be used in a pinch.

What's the easiest way to peel peaches?

Place peaches in a bowl of boiling water for 1 minute, then add to a bowl of ice water. The peelings will basically fall off when pulled just a little.

Can this recipe be made without an ice cream maker?

Yes, if you don't have an electric ice cream maker, simply blend all of the ingredients with a mixer and place in a solid airtight container. Pop it in the freezer. Mix ice cream with a hand mixer every 30 minutes over a 2 hour period until frozen. This prevents peaches from gravitating to the bottom. Keep frozen in an airtight container.

Can other fruits be used instead of peaches?

Any type of berry such as raspberries, strawberries, blackberries and blueberries can be used instead of peaches. Be sure to chop them into small chunks before churning. You'll need about 2 cups of berries after they've been chopped. This recipe makes a great base for all types of creations!

    1. The pudding acts as a thickening agent. You could use a slurry of cornstarch and water if you didn't want to use the pudding. I've never tested this recipe without pudding so I can't vouch for the results. If you try it let me know what happens!
