My ice cream machine has been getting a huge workout this month. I’ve been experimenting with flavors and textures. Some of my concoctions have been good and some spectacular. My favorite flavor combination thus far is ginger and peach. The sweet peaches compliment the spicy ginger and make a magical flavor combination. Every bite is a little sweet, a little spicy, cold and creamy.
Ginger Peach Ice Cream
- 5 ripe peaches chopped finely (approximately 2 cups)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 Tablespoon ginger grated
- 2 cups heavy or whipping cream
- 1 cup milk
Combine the peaches and ½ cup of sugar. Cover and refrigerate for one hour. Stir in ginger. Refrigerate for one additional hour.
After two hours of refrigeration, drain peaches reserving the juice.
In a large bowl, combine milk and cream and peach juice, whisk until blended.
Pour the liquid into your ice cream maker, following the manufacturer’s instructions. 3 minutes before the ice cream is done, add in the peaches.
Once complete, transfer to an air-tight container and freeze for a few hours prior to serving.
