Homemade Peach Ice Cream
- 4 cups peeled and sliced peaches (about 5-6 peaches)
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- Juice of 1 large lemon
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- ¼ teaspoon almond extract
- 2 cups heavy cream
In a large bowl, combine the sliced peaches, sugars, lemon juice and extracts. Stir to combine and allow to sit for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until the sugars have dissolved and the peaches are juicy.
Place peach mixture in a blender or food processor and pulse until the peaches are broken down but not totally pureed - some small chunks of peaches are ok. Add in the heavy cream and mix to combine.
Pour the mixture into an airtight container and chill in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours or even overnight.
When base is chilled, follow manufacturer's directions for churning in your ice cream maker. Once churned, place in an airtight, freezer-safe container and freeze for a few hours to harden before serving.
