Peach & Clove Ice Cream


Happy Labor Day guys!

I always joke that this is my day... well, because my last name is "Labor".  I know, I'm a dork.

I thought I'd celebrate the day by sharing a special treat with you guys!

This was the first time I had busted out my ice cream maker all season long.  And I had to make it perfect if I was going to get Andy to like it - he's got this crazy belief that "dessert should not include fruit" - so if I was going to make this, and make him like it - it had to be incredible.

And you know what?  He LOVED it!  Albeit... he did mix it with a crumbled up brownie and drizzle it with chocolate syrup - but hey, I'll still take it as a win!  Me?  I enjoy the simple flavors of the peaches, and interesting addition of the cloves.  I like to savor every bite of this one, because it truly is one of my favorites!

Ingredients:
Adapted from Oklahoma Peach Fuzz's recipe


1-1/3 lbs ripe peaches (about 6), peeled, pitted and coarsely chopped
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon Triple Sec

1 teaspoon ground cloves
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
juice from 1 lime

Combine peaches, water, cloves, and Triple Sec in medium nonreactive saucepan. Cover and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until peaches are soft and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Remove pan from heat.  Mix in sugar, and set aside to cool to room temperature.

Add peach mixture to food processor with Greek yogurt, heavy cream, milk, vanilla, and lime juice. Process until smooth. Chill thoroughly in refrigerator, about 6-8 hours. Once chilled, transfer to ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.



Happy Labor Day guys - I'll be spending the day relaxing and not thinking about having to return to work tomorrow!

  10. Yum! I like that this recipe doesn't use any egg yolks--I always have to figure out what to do with all of the egg whites after I make ice cream.

  13. The cloves must have given that ice cream such a great flavor. I adore homemade peach ice cream. It takes me right back to my childhood visits to my aunt and uncle's house.
