TWD: Honey Peach Ice Cream

This weeks recipe for Tuesdays with Dorie was choosen by Tommi of Brown Interior, the recipe can be found here.

I had never made ice cream before and was excited to try this, only one problem: I don't own an ice cream maker and neither does my friend Lisa that I'm visiting at the moment. But then I remembered something: didn't the TWD-ers make an ice cream shortly before I became a part of their wonderful group? I went looking and found out that they did: Blueberry Sour Cream Ice Cream in August 2008 and there was a post on making ice cream without an ice cream maker containing two links. After checking out both of them I decided to use David Lebovitz's method, go here for his method.

Back to Dorie's recipe: everything went great untill I had to thicken the custard: I whisked and whisked and whisked, for about 45 minutes, but it only got a little bit thicker. The recipe didn't state how thick the custard had to be so I eventually just gave in and decided this was it.
Making the actual ice cream was quite easy: you just have to stay around the house for a couple of hours. I paired the ice cream with last weeks parisian apple tartlets and served them while they were still warm. The combination of the ice cream with the tartlets was amazing. The only thing I would change next time is the chuncks of frozen peach: I didn't really care for those. I'd puree all the peaches instead and I'd also use a bit more fruit as the flavour of the honey stood out quite a bit more than the peaches. I loved how easy it was to make ice cream, so you'll be seeing more ice cream here!! Check out what my fellow TWD-ers thought of the Honey Peach Ice Cream here.

wow, good job making ice cream by hand. I rely on trusty old electricity to do my dirty work. I bet it was soooo good with last week's tart.

Looks great, Marthe.

I think I'll just stay with chocolate.

Pairing these with the apple tarts sounds awesome! I agree that the peach chunks were a little too much for me--I didn't like biting into frozen fruit in my creamy ice cream. Big congrats for making ice cream without an ice cream maker, too!

Your ice cream looks great with the tartlet! I haven't tried making ice cream without a machine, but you make it sound easy!

Marthe, I'm so impressed that you made this by hand WHILE you're on vacation. That is some serious, serious dedication!
It looks like it was wonderful paired with the Parisian tart from last week.

Apparently, very few were big fans of the frozen peach chunks. Next time, I would puree it all as well. I thought that this would be great with the tarts, too. But my timing didn't work out for that. Glad your did, though!

Leslie zei

Next time I make this, I'm pureeing all the peaches. Like you, I didn't care for the icy chunks.

It looks lovely and I'm glad you had fun making it! I currently have a little tart baking to have with leftover ice cream.

That ice cream sounds hard to make after reading about some of the TWD'rs experiences. I skipped out on the ice cream, but I made the jambalaya. You are a fabulous baker!!!

Marly zei

You make some amazing stuff! Summer ice cream is one of my favorite things. Fruity desserts are just so perfect--please share more!
