When I was a little girl there was a couple of things you could ALWAYS count on eating at Nana's house in the Summer: homemade tea cakes, rice krispy treats, and peach ice cream! Nana loves peach ice cream and she always had some made and ready. I never realized how much it symbolized Summer to me until I made some this weekend for her birthday. As soon as I tasted it I felt like I was back at her house and it was 1990s all over again! :-)
6-8 sliced, peeled peaches (I cheated this time because they aren't really in season yet and used thawed frozen peaches)
1 cup of sugar
4 cups half and half
1 small box of instant vanilla pudding
1 can evaporated milk
1 can sweetened condensed milk
Slice and peel peaches, mix with sugar. Stir and let sit for about an hour.
After an hour, place the peaches and sugar in a food processor (do not use a blender, it will not work as well) and puree until it is a chunky puree. We like to have chunks of peaches in our ice cream so I do not puree all the way.
Pour into ice cream freezer and freeze according to the freezer's instructions.
Hope you enjoy!
