I don’t scream for ice cream but I like it okay, if it is rich in butter fat, not a custard, doesn’t contain any evaporated milk and is not overloaded with sugar. If it contains fruit, the fruit should be fresh and in discernible pieces/chunks.
When I was a child, I loved peach ice cream. It was homemade, rich and creamy with chunks of fresh peaches inside, hand churned in relays. Whoever made that ice cream must have died, leaving no recipe behind, because I have not found that style anywhere 😦
Still, the peaches are lovely in the market and I wanted some peach ice cream. I can’t find my electric ice cream machine (none of that hand churning stuff for me). God knows where it is, and anyway I wasn’t looking forward to the salt and shaved ice routine.
Whether in the U.S. or France, whenever I feel the need to “acquire”, I first consult Amazon, in France, www.amazon.fr. I found this way cool “Cuisinart ICE” ice cream maker. No shaved ice or salt required and the ice cream is ready in 30 minutes. Clean up was a breeze. I highly recommend this ice cream maker to those of you looking to acquire 😉
This Ben & Jerry’s inspired Peach Ice Cream recipe was good. I decreased the sugar and next time, instead of supermarket cream, I will use a better quality cream from the farmer’s market.
