Spiced Ginger-Peach Ice Cream

Rated as 2.67 out of 5 Stars

"This started as an experiment with a custard-style ice cream base and has become a requested favorite for get-togethers. The sweetness of the peach and smooth cream gets a boost from the earthy spices without being overpowering. I eat it plain but a few friends enjoy it in ice cream sandwiches."

  1. Whisk milk, sugar, and salt together in a saucepan over medium heat; bring to a simmer. Stir peach puree, ginger, cinnamon, and vanilla extract; simmer until flavors blend, 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. Place egg yolks in a small bowl. Slowly pour 1/2 cup hot milk mixture into eggs, whisking constantly. Pour warmed egg mixture into the milk mixture in the saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until thick, 5 to 10 minutes. Strain egg mixture into a chilled bowl and refrigerate, stirring occasionally, until chilled, about 2 hours.
  3. Whisk cream into chilled egg mixture; add peaches and stir.
  4. Pour peach mixture into the container of an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Tempering the eggs and straining the mix will help reduce any egg bits from cropping up and give a smoother texture for the finished custard ice cream.
  • Half-and-half can be substituted for cream.

I had big hopes for this recipe and sadly the flavors just didn't come through. I added a full peach (slices) just before churning and still wasn't enough. It needs more peach purée and perhaps ...
