Every August the peach tree in our garden is bursting with huge, juicy peaches. I make this at least once a week every summer once that tree gives up its fruit, for family desserts and as gifts for friends.
This recipe was posted in answer to a message board request. It was one of many recipes that came with my ice cream machine. Cinnamon ice cream is yummy on warm apple pie, baked apples, bread pudding or just in a bowl by itself, on a hot night. Freezing time for this recipe is 30 minutes in my electric ice cream machine. Time may vary according to the manufactures directions for your ice cream maker. Cook/Prep times do not include the 1 to 2 hour chilling time needed before processing/freezing the cooked mixture. Note: The egg yolk gives the finished product a better texture.
I believe there are 2 kinds of people in the world, chocolate addicts and lemon lovers. My lemon lover went wild for this. If you don't have an ice cream maker, it may work to freeze the liquid sorbet and then put it into a food processor or blender; haven't tried that, but it's a thought. Cook time is minimum chill time.
This was always my father's favorite flavour of ice cream, and there is nothing tastier or better than fresh homemade icecream. This goes great with large wedges of apple walnut pie,a nd if you are feeling really decadent, butterscotch sauce poured over all.
I got this recipe from Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream book. It is the reason I own an ice cream maker. Every year we go to Gaffney, SC and pick up a huge basket of peaches. This is the perfect way to use some of them. The cooking time listed includes time to let the peaches sit in the fridge.
