When the days are filled with bike rides, swimming, frozen treats and fresh fruit …..combine the signs of summer into a delicious creamy Roasted Peach Frozen Custard.

 What goes better with summer than ice cream? In a cone or a bowl, plain or complicated, any kind of ice cream will do!  I remember as a child watching my mom or dad pour the salt and crank the handle to the ice cream maker while I ever so patiently waited to lick the beater.  I’m sure we made many flavors, but homemade peach ice cream is the cold creamy dessert I remember most.

Thankfully these days, you don’t have to take turns cranking the machine, although that might be fun to do one evening! This summer I hope to keep the freezer stocked with lots of homemade ice cream and frozen custard.  If your curious about the difference in frozen custard and ice cream,  according to Wikipedia: The high percentage of butterfat and egg yolk gives frozen custard a thick, creamy texture and a smoother consistency than ice cream.  I decided to kick off summer with Roasted Brown Sugar Peaches and Cream Frozen Custard.

Start with simple, high-quality ingredients like cream and sugar, pour the base into the ice cream machine, then end up with a cold, creamy dessert.

The highlight of this ice cream is the flavor of the roasted peaches. Add a touch of cinnamon and a small bit of brown sugar to the peaches before roasting them for a short time in a hot oven.  You can really taste the cinnamon and brown sugar, so go light, if you want the peach flavor to shine alone, just omit the cinnamon and brown sugar — you won’t be disappointed!

With a basic vanilla custard in your arsenal,  you can experiment with other flavors by mixing in at the end.  On this day I made two batches, one I kept just vanilla and we ate it right out of the machine like soft serve. – OMG was this good!!

The other batch I added in the roasted peaches and froze over night for a scoopable frozen treat the next day!

Frozen Custard is really quite simple to make at home, but because it is made of so few ingredients the quality of those ingredients is key.  You will also need an ice cream machine to process the base until it’s nearly frozen.   It’s ready to eat right out of the machine as a ‘soft serve’ or a few hours more in the freezer produce a wonderful firm frozen custard.

 How to make Frozen Custard at Home: (full recipe at end of this post)

  1. Warm milk, sugar, 1 cup of the heavy cream, vanilla bean paste and salt in a medium saucepan over low heat, stirring until the sugar is dissolved.  Then remove from the heat, cover and let steep at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  2. Pour the remaining 1 cup heavy cream into a large bowl and place a fine-mesh sieve on top and set aside.
  3. Separate 6 eggs, and whisk egg yolks. (don’t throw the whites out, you can store egg whites)
  4. Slowly pour the warmed milk mixture into the egg yolks, whisking constantly.
  5. Pour mixture back into sauce pan, and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until custard coats the spoon, about 2 minutes.
  6. Remove custard from heat and strain through a fine-mesh strainer into the bowl of remaining cream to remove any lumps and stir to combine. (my bowl changed colors in the pictures because I was making 2 batches and took the pictures at different times.  Step 2 and 6 will be the same bowl)
  7. Place bowl of custard base in ice bath to cool to room temperature, about 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. (I just fill my kitchen sink with a few inches of cold ice water).  Once cooled, cover bowl and place in the refrigerator to chill completely, at least 3 hours or overnight.
  8. Once chilled, pour into the freezer bowl of your electric ice cream maker. Turn on and churn according to the manufactures directions. (This is where you will add your mixins – like the chilled roasted peaches).  Serve immediately or transfer to a freezer-safe container and store in the freezer.

Homemade ice cream is best kept for about a week, after which the flavor weakens. To prevent frozen custard or ice cream from forming ice crystals, press some waxed paper on top each time you scoop some out to preserve flavor and texture. (this works with store bought ice cream as well).

Every bit as delicious as I had imagine!  and SO worth the brain freeze!!

Roasted Brown Sugar Peaches and Cream Frozen Custard

Combine the signs of summer into a delicious creamy roasted peach frozen custard.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups heavy cream, divided
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste
  • Pinch of salt
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 4 peaches
  • 1-2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • cinnamon, enough to lightly sprinkle

Instructions

    Roast Peaches
  1. Heat oven to 400°
  2. Cut the peaches in half and remove the pits and place cut side up in large roasting pan. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Roast in oven until golden brown and soft, about 25-30 minutes.
  3. Let cool completely and peel the skins off the peaches. Place in refrigerator in air tight container to chill several hours or over night
  4. Frozen Peach Custard
  5. Warm milk, sugar, 1 cup of the heavy cream, vanilla bean paste and salt in a medium saucepan over low heat, stirring until the sugar is dissolved, about 10-12 minutes. Then remove from the heat, cover and let steep at room temperature for about 30 minutes.
  6. Pour the remaining 1 cup heavy cream into a large bowl and place a fine-mesh sieve on top and set aside.
  7. Using a second large bowl, whisk egg yolks. Slowly pour the warm milk mixture into the egg yolks, whisking constantly.
  8. Pour the egg and milk mixture back into sauce pan, and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until custard thickens and coats the spoon, about 2 minutes.
  9. Remove custard from heat and strain through the fine-mesh strainer into the bowl of remaining cream to remove any lumps and stir to combine.
  10. Place bowl of custard base in ice bath to cool to room temperature, about 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. (I just fill my kitchen sink with a few inches of cold ice water). Once cooled, cover bowl and place in the refrigerator to chill completely, at least 3 hours, but best overnight.
  11. When both fruit and custard base are chilled sufficiently, mash the peaches with a fork (no need to puree), add them to the custard base and process the ice cream according to your ice cream maker manufacturer's directions.
  12. Enjoy immediately as soft serve or freeze until set.

Notes

*Don't worry if you can't remove the peach pits before you put them in the oven, both the skins and pits can be easily be removed once the fruits are roasted.

*Homemade ice cream and frozen custard is best kept for about a week, after which the flavor weakens. To prevent ice cream from forming ice crystals, press some waxed paper on top each time you scoop some out to preserve flavor and texture.

    Amazing! Brown sugar peaches + Frozen custard is a match made in heaven!

    Oh my word! I have been making homemade peach ice cream all my life but never, ever have I thought of roasting the peaches. It’s taking everything I can do not to get up and run to the kitchen to try this :-)

  5. 5

    mmm mmm mmm. That ice cream look so good and those peaches! To die for!

    I don’t often see frozen custard up in these parts… in fact, I’m not even sure I’ve had frozen custard before. But gosh darn it, this looks amazing. And can I just say I’m kinda in love with that black and white pic. :-)

  7. 7

    looks incredibly divine! what a great way to use those beautiful peaches!

  8. 8

    vanilla paste, don’t have, can you use liquid pure vanilla ?

    • 9

      If you don’t have vanilla bean paste, the better substitute would be to scrape the seed from a vanilla bean – vanilla extract should work in a pinch, just isn’t as flavorful and doesn’t have the flecks of vanilla – if you can get some paste I HIGHLY recommend it!! I LOVE to use it any “vanilla” recipe!!

    Oh my…seeing those wonderful peaches brought back fun memories of making fresh peach homemade ice cream in a hand-cranked ice cream maker. My dad was a teacher/principal during the school year and was what the framers called a “Weigh Master” during the peach season in Northern CA. We always ate fresh peaches everyday during that time if year. My mother would can peaches several times during the season so we could have wonderful peach desserts during the rest of the year. I even remember one year when a small cannery, a few miles from our home, made their facilities available to anyone that wanted to can their fruit in real cans. My mother had my dad bring home several lugs of peaches and she and a friend spent a whole day, at the cannery, doing up not only peaches but making peach marmalade too. Yummy!
    It wasn’t until my dad quit doing his summer work did I realize how spoiled we really were to have this great fresh fruit every summer. Oh, he could still get fresh fruit from the farmers anytime he wanted it because of the relationship he had built-up from all the years working at their weigh stations, but not going there everyday to work made getting the fruit less convenient. I still enjoy homemade ice cream over store bought, especially fresh peach. I think my hubby and I need to have s serious discussion about buying one of the new easy to use ice cream makers TODAY!!! : )

    Oh man, roasting the peaches is such a wonderful idea. I can just imagine how much more flavor this ice cream is.
