This week's Tuesdays with Dorie (TWD) recipe was chosen by Tommi of Brown Interior: Honey-Peach Ice Cream. This was the perfect recipe to start off the summer!
I love ice cream. I pretty much love all kinds of ice cream... from plain vanilla to rich and creamy chocolate to fruit-based flavors. So I was excited to see this recipe picked. It was a bit time consuming to peel and dice all the peaches, but otherwise this didn't take too long. This recipe gave me the perfect opportunity to test out the Boos cutting board I received from KaTom Restaurant Supply. It's a good, solid cutting board. The size is a bit small, but it is large enough to handle most tasks. Since I only use it for non-meat items like fruits and veggies, it does the job just fine.
If you don't have an ice cream maker (you should really invest in one, though!), no worries. You can learn how to make ice cream without an ice cream maker here. Though time consuming, it's a very simple method that yields wonderful results.
The honey flavor in this ice cream was lovely, and complemented the peaches well. If you don't have peaches (or don't like them), you can substitute other fruits such as nectarines or plums. I actually found that the bits of peaches became too hard/frozen after the ice cream was done, so the next time I make this, I will definitely dice them into even smaller pieces. Thanks Tommi, for a great pick. If you would like the recipe, you can find it here. Make sure you visit the TWD Blogroll to see what everyone else thought about this cool, summery treat.
* Recipes notes:
- Dice your peaches into super teeny tiny pieces to avoid biting into large chunks of icey fruit in the ice cream.
- No whole milk? No problem. Learn how to make your own whole milk from skim/1%/2% milk and heavy cream or half & half here.
