Of all the summertime flavors, I think that peach ice cream brings it all home for me. This delightful recipe comes from the Inn At Little Washington and Chef Patrick O'Connell. Special equipment: Ice Cream Machine(cook time is estimated freezing time)

I went looking for Virginia Recipes this past weekend and had also picked up fresh local peaches at the farmers market too. What a treat to find a recipe from The Inn at Little Washington for Peach Ice Cream! This is a great recipe and makes for lovely ice cream with great local cream from the folks of Trickling Spring Creamery!<br/><br/>Thanks for sharing! I've further shared on which is dedicated to recipes with fresh local ingredients and local establishments.
