Fresh Peach Ice Cream

  • Serves

    makes About 1 Quart


This recipe is an adaptation of the one we received while visiting a small Alabama town during the heat of summer.


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 23 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 12 cups whole milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 large peach, pitted, skinned, and puréed
  • 12 cup peach soda, preferably Nehi
  • Pinch of salt


Step 1

Put sugar, evaporated milk, 1⁄2 cup of the whole milk, and eggs into a medium saucepan and whisk until well combined. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until thickened, about 30 minutes. Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a large bowl and set aside to let cool.

Step 2

Once mixture has cooled, add puréed peach, peach soda, remaining whole milk, and a pinch of salt and stir well to combine.

Step 3

Pour mixture into an ice cream maker and process according to the manufacturer's directions. Transfer ice cream to a sealable freezer-safe container and freeze.
