"The best way to capture the elusive flavour of summertime. Ben and Jerry prefer small peaches because they have more flavor and less water than the larger ones. Prep is 2hrs 15 mins which is almost all chill time. Freezing time is however long it takes for your ice cream maker to freeze it."

"Ummm. This recipe has eggs in it and these eggs are not cooked?? I suspect there is a mistake in this recipe here. First, uncooked eggs carry the risk of salmonella. Second, the point of putting eggs in the recipe is to create a cooked, thick and rich, custard base. If you actually make a custard based with the eggs, milk, and cream first, I suspect the results would be even better. Otherwise, omit the eggs, omit the cup of milk and use another cup of cream instead, and you will have the makings of a good, traditional, cream-based peach ice cream."
"WOW! This is sooo good! I love the texture and the sweetness. We really enjoyed it. my husband said that it needed some vanilla, but I thought it was great!"
"This was a lovely ice cream, very fresh and not overly sweet. Thanks for posting Annacia!"
"Amazing!!! So rich and creamy and tons of peach flavor! Great way to use up some peaches that were going bad from a recent peach picking trip!"
"THANK YOU for posting this one! I have the Ben & Jerry's book but can I find it? Nooooo.....but, that being said. You can't go wrong with ANY of the ice-cream recipes by Ben & Jerry's........I have made this before and the only thing I do is cut back on the sugar as we don't like things to sweet. (it's a personal taste thing) Other then that......Perfect!"
"I tried this recipe but substituted 2 1/2 to 2 3/4 cup chopped frozen strawberries, added about 1/4 cup more sugar and added the fruit and juice (not separated) at the same time as the milk and cream. I just poured it all into the ice cream maker. It turned out to be the best ice cream ever! P.S. I made the peach ice cream twice before, but again, added the fruit and juice (again, not separated) at the same time as the milk and cream."
"Delicious, delicious, delicious. Thank you Annacia, we enjoyed this tasty, creamy treat so much. It was really quick and easy to make. What a lovely flavour, sweet and tart and tangy, with a rich creamy texture. I can't wait to have this lovely peach ice cream again. Thanks for a new family favourite."
"Smooth, creamy and oh so good. Made with fresh peaches from the garden and enjoyed by all. I think I should have added vanilla too but didn't think about it. Wondering if it's possible to be any better or easier. Thanks for posting"
"Yummy! I made it with canned peach and just used the juice from the can. This ice cream is so rich and creamy with just the right texture and consistency! Thank you for posting!"
"Strangely enough, the ice cream tasted great in spite of Ben and Jerry's attempts to kill us all with salmonella."
"Pretty rich for a non-custard ice cream recipe. This was delicious. Heed the "finely chopped" instructions. Larger pieces (I had the same experience with strawberries) will form hard chunks of fruit-ice rather than a nice ice cream addition. My only change was lime instead of lemon as that's what I had on hand and what I prefer. Oh- and a teaspoon of vanilla. How could you have an ice cream recipe, especially a peach recipe, without vanilla?!? This made about 1 1/3 quarts. I used 5 small peaches."
