Nancy's Granny's Peach Ice Cream

I encountered this ice cream nearly thiry years ago at a party. I could tast that it was something special and sought out the person making it. We have been friends ever since. Nancy Ennis is an internationally exhibited artist and published author, and a fine recipe rescuer as well. Granny was Nancy's paternal grandmother, Mary Simms Foley, from East Texas.

1 heaping quart peaches
   (about 2 pounds)

2½ cups sugar

1 quart heavy cream

3 cups light cream

2 tablespoons lemon juice

¼ teaspoon salt

Peel and pit peaches. Cut into 1-inch pieces and put into a large bowl. Mash well and blend in sugar.

Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.

Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions.


Kitchen Wisdom

Be sure to mash your fruit so that there are no large pieces left, or you will find frozen peach rockes in your ice cream. Nancy says that mangoes work very well in this recipe too.
