Old Fashioned Peach Ice Cream

  
The ice cream maker I got as a birthday present is a Cuisinart and I have been very pleased with their ice cream recipes. One of the ones we liked a lot was this recipe for Old-Fashioned Peach Ice Cream. The recipe is not too sweet with the addition of some lemon zest; and calls for light corn syrup which I had not used in ice cream before this recipe. We thought it worked very well, and kept the ice cream from melting as fast. If you have fresh peaches available and a ice cream maker give this a whirl. Good eating and peaches contain calcium, potassium and vitamin A. I did use my food processor for this recipe.
  We eat ice cream all year long. Even in our Midwest winters. If you can't get fresh peaches, try using frozen with out added sugar.
Old Fashioned Peach Ice Cream.
Zest of 1 small lemon (2 ounce)
½ cup sugar
10 peaches (3 ounces apiece)
3 Tablespoons butter
1 cup light corn syrup
1 ½ cup heavy cream (or half and half)
  Use a vegetable peeler to remove zest from lemon. Add zest and sugar to food processor work bowl with metal blade. Process until zest is almost as fine as the sugar, about 1 minute.
  Wash peaches; cut in half and remove pits. Cut each half into 2 to 3 pieces, add peaches to work bowl; process until coarsely chopped.
  Melt margarine in saucepan over low heat, add the sugar peach mixture and cook until tender, stirring constantly, about 6 minutes. Stir in the corn syrup and blend.
  Pour peach mixture into a large bowl and stir in the cream. Then follow manufacturer’s directions for using ice cream maker.
  Transfer ice cream to airtight container and freeze up to 4 weeks if it lasts that long.
