Just Peachy

For those of you who know me, you know I live on ice cream and there is nothing like fresh peach ice cream.

Peach Ice Cream
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 cups milk
4 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons vanilla
4 cups whipping cream
2 1/2 cups crushed or pureed peaches, sweetened to taste

Preparation:Combine sugar, cornstarch, and salt in top of double boiler; gradually blend in milk. Cook over hot water, stirring occasionally, for about 12 to 15 minutes, or until thickened. Stir a small amount of the hot mixture into the beaten eggs, then return egg mixture to pan with remaining hot mixture. Cook over hot water, stirring constantly, for 4 to 5 minutes, until it is about as thick as pudding. Chill thoroughly, about 3 hours. Stir vanilla and cream into the chilled mixture. Pour into a 1-gallon ice cream freezer; freeze according to manufacturer's directions. Remove dasher and stir in crushed or pureed sweetened peaches; repack ice cream freezer with 1 part rock salt to 6 parts crushed ice and let ripen for 2 hours.
