Homemade Vanilla Peach Ice Cream

The weather is so hot and humid that I have been churning out more ice creams from my Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker. This time it is Vanilla Peach Ice Cream.  Ingredients used are Heavy cream, milk, sugar and peaches and vanilla extract . It is so delicious even though I used canned Peach for it. I preferred homemade as I can control the amount of  sugar and the flavours too.  Without an ice cream maker you can still churn out the custard with the food processor. No worry on this issue. Just that with an ice cream maker , it makes things easier. Manually done , a little bit more work as you have to set it a while and take out to whisk in the food processor or a hand whisk to break the ice particles in the custard for a softer and smooth texture. With an ice cream maker , straight from the chilled custard  to ice cream and you can serve straight from the ice cream maker or further set in the freezer for an hour before serving. This ice cream is perfect when you have guest over for dinner as an after dinner dessert.

I normally like to add fresh flowers from my garden as deco when serving to friends

Vanilla Peach Ice Cream
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup  milk
3/4 cup sugar ( I reduce to 1/2 cup sugar )
1 can of peach
1 tbsp of vanilla extract 
1 tbsp of lemon juice

Combine the cream, milk, sugar and vanilla extract  in a medium saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring , to dissolve the sugar. Place the pan in the ice bath and stir occasionally until it cools to room temperature. Transfer to a contianer , covrr and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled about 3 hours.
About an hour before you churn the ice cream, add in the chopped and blended peaches mixture, stir in the lemon juice. Freeze in ice maker according to the manufacture's instruction. Transfer to a container and freeze until firm about 2 hours.
