5 cups fresh ripe peaches
2½ cups sugar
2 tablespoons natural peach extract
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
4 cups whole milk
3 cups heavy cream (whipping cream)
Blanch the peaches in boiling water for 30 seconds to loosen the skins and then peel. Chop coarsely and mix with sugar. Let rest for 8 hours to marinate.
When you are ready to make the ice cream, set aside ¼ of the cut peach mixture and purée the remainder in a blender. Pour the purée into ice-cream maker along with the extracts, milk, and cream. Turn on (or start cranking) the machine and when batch is nearly done, mix in remaining cut-up pieces of peaches. Serve, and enjoy.
