Peach Ice Cream

This weekend I made the most delicious homemade peach ice cream. I got the recipe from Annie's Eats, she always has the best recipes, but it originally comes from one of my favorite food bloggers, David Lebovitz.  I love that all of the ingredients are fresh, there's no sweetened condensed milk or evaporated milk like some recipes.  It's so refreshing and light, perfect for a summer afternoon. Here's the recipe:

Homemade Peach Ice Cream1 1/3 lbs. ripe peaches, peeled, pitted and coarsely chopped
½ cup water
¾ cup sugar
½ cup sour cream
1 cup heavy cream
¼ tsp. vanilla extract

Combine the peaches and water in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, covered, stirring occasionally until the peaches are soft and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat, mix in the sugar, and set aside to cool to room temperature.

Add the peaches and their juices to a blender or food processor with the remaining ingredients. Pulse briefly so that the mixture is well combined. For a smooth ice cream with no chunks of fruit, continue processing until smooth. Chill the mixture thoroughly in the refrigerator. Once chilled, transfer to your ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
