Homemade Peach Ice Cream

​You’ve got to try this homemade peach ice cream! We’ve added our Peach Preserves and topped it with some fun toppings and the results are just….peachy!



  1. Peel skins from peaches, remove the pits and chop into small bite size pieces in a small bowl.
  2. Sprinkle 3 tablespoons of lemon juice over the peaches and stir; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl add egg yolks, brown sugar, and salt. Whisk well.
  4. Place 2 cups whole milk and sweetened condensed milk in a medium-sized pan over medium heat, stirring continuously.
  5. Using a candy thermometer, bring the milk up to 170°F for about one minute.
  6. Slowly add just a little of the warmed milk into the egg yolk mixture. Add it slowly and whisk quickly to temper the eggs.
  7. Continue to whisk and add milk until incorporated with the egg mixture. Pour back into the sauce pan.
  8. Add the chopped peaches, peach preserves, and vanilla extract. Stir until well combined.
  9. Cook this mixture over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it reaches 170°F.
  10. The custard is ready when it has reduced and thickened enough that it coats the back of a spoon. Run your finger across the spoon and if it leaves a trail, the base is ready.
  11. Place the sauce pan in your sink and surround it with cold water, stirring it often as it cools.
  12. Place cooled base in a covered container and refrigerate. It will last for at least 24 hours.
  13. Use the base mixture and enough whole milk to reach the fill line on your ice cream maker.
  14. Follow manufacturer’s instructions for your ice cream maker to complete.
