I posted my Summer Bucket list earlier this summer. I’m going to extend that to an Indian Summer Bucket List because I’ve just managed to cross off my first one today!
My first bucket list item was to invent my own ice cream flavor. With all the peaches in high-season I knew I wanted to do something with them. The end result was… Cinnamon Peach ice cream!!
1 cup sugar
1.5 cups whole milk
3 cups light cream
1 tsp vanilla
2 T orange juice
First of all, I used a Cuisinart Ice Cream maker to make my ice cream. The bowl was put in the freezer 24 hours beforehand.
I peeled, cored and chopped up two peaches. I put them in a bowl with a spoonful of sugar and a little bit of OJ. I let it sit for a while (at least 45 minutes) before I started making the ice cream.
Then I mixed together the sugar and milk and folded in the heavy cream, cinnamon and vanilla.
Then I got the frozen bowl out of the freezer and poured in the milk/cream mixture and started the machine. I let it churn for 20 minutes and I poured in half the diced peaches and all of the liquid in the bowl.
I let it churn for another 10 minutes and poured in the rest of the peaches. I turned off the machine immediately and stuck the bowl in the freezer until firm.
It was perfectly delicious!!
Next time I might put the peaches through the food processor a bit to make the pieces a little bit smaller, but it was still summery, citrusy and satisfying.
What’s your favorite flavor ice cream? This might be my new favorite.
