1 - Peel and dice the peaches, then place them in a bowl. Mash with a fork and leave some pulp so there will be fruit in the finished product. Stir well, then place in the refrigerator while making the rest of the recipe.
2 - In the freezer bowl container of your ice cream maker, add the sweetened condensed milk, instant pudding and evaporated milk. Whisk until smooth. Add the fruit from the refrigerator and half & half, then whisk again.
3 - Place the container in the ice cream maker and put the lid on. Pack the outside with rock salt and ice in layers until it reaches the top. Follow the directions included with your ice cream maker for best results.
4 - Turn the ice cream maker on and let it work it's magic. When the churning stops, remove the container.
5 - If the ice cream is solid enough, it can be eaten right away. If it needs to freeze longer, put it in a plastic container and process in the freezer for a few hours until solid.
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.
Yes, frozen peaches may be used and work well in this recipe. Canned peaches disintegrate faster when churned, but can also be used in a pinch.
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.
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.
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!
