honey-peach ice cream

I know I was a tease on Sunday, so I won’t keep you in suspense any longer. Here is my honey-peach ice cream. Ta da! Tommi at Brown Interior chose this week’s Tuesdays With Dorie recipe…a delightful choice, indeed!

This was my first time making ice cream and I fretted over how it would turn out since I don’t have an ice cream maker. My fellow TWD’ers came to my rescue and turned me on to a great resource, David Lebovitz’s article on making ice cream without a machine. I feared  the consistency would be icy instead of creamy, but with a litte (ok, a lot) of stirring and a tablespoon of alcohol (I used vodka), it turned out great. I mean really, really great!

I had hoped to find some wonderful, ripe peaches, but, alas, I could find none. The ones in the grocery store were almost as firm as the apples! So I went with Plan B and thawed some frozen peach slices. I used the honey I bought at the farmers market a couple of weeks ago from the Honey Moon Bee Co. and it added just the right amount of sweetness without being overpowering.
