Tuesdays with Dorie: Honey-Peach Ice Cream

honey-peach ice cream

We are well into June now…never mind the fact that it’s been raining here constantly, and the thermometer can’t decide if it wants to read warm or chilly…it’s time to crank out some ice cream!  Tommi of the colorful Brown Interior selected Honey-Peach Ice Cream for TWD, so that’s a good place to start!

Peaches cooked down in honey are puréed and added to a simple custard.  I buy Cobble Hill Honey from Two for the Pot in Brooklyn.  Every jar I’ve purchased tastes a little different, and my current one is quite mild.  After churning, some extra chopped peach bits are supposed to be added to the ice cream.  Peaches aren’t quite in season here, and the ones I bought were less than spectacular, so I just cooked and puréed the whole lot, rather than save some for add-ins.  I added most of the purée to the custard, but didn’t want to thin it out too much, so I froze the rest in an ice cube tray…I see bellinis in my near future!  As is, I liked this ice cream a lot, and would love to try it again with amazing peaches and a stronger batch of honey!

For the recipe, see Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan, or read Brown Interior.  Don’t forget to check out the TWD Blogroll!

P.S.:  By the time this post pops up, I’ll be in Michigan, visiting one of my grandmas.  I haven’t seen her in a few years, so please forgive me if I can’t make the blogroll rounds this week.  Also, because of the timing of this trip, I’m not sure I’ll be able to make next week’s recipe.  I know, I know…I’ll do my best, but it may have to be one for the rewind files.

  2. This was so good! (my first homemade ice cream). I didn’t want the peachy bits either…but I pureed all the peaches and it seems to work fine, But I was thinking about bellinis while I was doing that! The ice cube idea is a great one (next time!) Have fun visiting your grandma!

    Our thermometer doesn’t know what to do with itself either.

  10. Hmmmm…that sounds really good. We harvest our own honey, so I’m always interested in a recipe that uses honey.

    Your ice cream container is awesome. Do you recycle store-bought ice cream containers, or is there some place that you buy them?

  21. Hi Steph!

    Your ice cream looks simply delicious! I LOVE the picture with your very own container- too cute! Thank you SO much for emailing me back with some words of blogging advice. Right after I got it, I started using the Picnik site, and it’s fabulous. What a find! I’d love to learn more from you in the future, as I admire your work/blog very much and your posts continue to inspire me! If you have anything else to share, please don’t hesitate to get in touch via email or by posting on my blog (I was so honored you came by for a visit!) I hope you have a wonderful time visiting with your grandma, especially since you two haven’t seen each other in a while. Aren’t grandma’s just the best? I look forward to your return so you can start blogging again… what can I say, I’m hooked to “a whisk and a spoon”!

    Hope to talk to you soon,

    Enjoy your trip to your grandma’s!

  25. Your ice cream looks great. I hope you have a great trip!

  26. Let me be the first to say how luscious your ice cream looks. I want to try it again with some real fruit instead of canned.

    Have a great time with your Granny. both of mine are gone and they are missed.

  27. I so want a scoop of this to go with my coffee this morning. Great photo-capturing the coldness and creaminess of the icecream. Have a wonderful vacation, visiting family is so important.

  28. I hear yeah, the weather has been up and down!! This ice cream looks like a sure treat to beat the rainy blues!
    Have fun visiting you’re grandmother!

  29. I think I would have preferred to have pureed all the peaches to have a completely smooth ice cream, but it is tasty. I hope you have a good trip!

  30. Yum. Looks delicious. Why is Amazon taking so long with my book I ordered! 😉 I guess I am far away from the warehouse. Oh, I had to get a couple of Dorie’s baking books. I have been so inspired by all your posts! 🙂

  31. I still can’t believe it is June and it’s over half-way over! Your ice cream looks great!

  32. Thanks for the comments! For everyone who asked about my little ice cream container, it’s simply a recycled fro-yo container from Red Mango!

  33. Your ice cream looks delicious! Where did you get that ice cream container?! It’s perfect. We really liked this recipe too. Have a great time in Michigan!
