Ben & Jerry's Fresh Georgia Peach Ice
2 c Ripe peaches; finely chopped
2 large Eggs
1 1/4 c Sugar
2 c Heavy or whipping cream
1/2 Juice of lemon
1 c Milk
Ben and Jerry prefer small peaches because they have more flavor and less water
than the larger ones.
Combine the peaches, 1/2 cup of the sugar, and the lemon juice in a bowl. Cover
and refrigerate for 2 hours, stirring the mixture every 30 minutes. Remove the
peaches from the refrigerator and drain the juice into another bowl. Return the
peaches to the refrigerator. Whisk the eggs in a
mixing bowl until light and fluffy, 1-2 minutes. Whisk in the remaining 3/4 cup
sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely blended,
about 1 minute more. Pour in the cream and milk and whisk to blend. Add the
peach juice and blend. Transfer the mixture to an ice cream
maker and freeze following manufacturer's instructions. After the ice cream
stiffens (about 2 minutes before it's done) add the peaches, then continue
freezing until the ice cream is ready.
Makes 1 generous quart.
