Fresh peach ice-cream

When I found myself with almost a full punnet of rapidly over-ripening flat peaches, and a pint of double cream, there was only one solution – peach ice-cream!

We love our ice-cream maker. It’s so easy to combine fruit, cream and a few other ingredients and turn them into a fabulously smooth and creamy iced dessert in the time in takes to eat the main course. (Previous outings for the machine include rhubarb & strawberry ice-cream sundae, and hazelnut meringue three-berry ice-cream sandwiches.)

This peach ice-cream manages to be creamy and refreshing at the same time. It does contain really quite a lot of fruit, so you could almost count it as one of your five a day, if you had a decent scoop 🙂 I didn’t bother peeling the peaches but just whizzed them up, skin and all, so the ice-cream is flecked with tiny pink particles of peach skin, which look quite pretty. 

The flavour is subtle, rather than intense. I suspect that adding more sugar would have accentuated the flavour further, but I wanted to avoid making it too sweet. I really liked it this way, and it seemed to go down well with DH and Kipper. We ate it with some strawberries and other fruit, and it was the perfect accompaniment on a (very) hot summer’s evening.

In case you’re curious, our ice-cream maker is the Magimix Gelato Chef, which has the distinct advantage that you don’t have to freeze the bowl or anything else in advance. You can decide to make ice-cream at the drop of a hat, and just get on with it. That said, it is ridiculously expensive, but it was a birthday present from DH. Lucky me 🙂

I keep thinking that this peach ice-cream would be great sandwiched between two ginger biscuits, but as yet, I haven’t tested this hypothesis. If you have a go, please let me know in the comments what it’s like!
