Peach Ice Cream
- 8 to 10 ripe peaches
- 1 cup sugar
- ½ package instant vanilla pudding
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 pint heavy cream
- 1½ quarts whole milk
- 6 eggs
Dip each peach in boiling water to remove skins. Slice peaches, and toss with the sugar in a medium bowl. Set aside.
Mix together the pudding, condensed milk, cream, and whole milk in a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Beat the eggs in a separate bowl, and add to the milk mixture. Cook slowly until the mixture barely coats the back of a wooden spoon. Remove from heat, and stir in the peaches. Freeze in ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
