Peach Time At The Farm

Peaches have ripened, been picked and frozen for later.  Just had to keep out enough for some homemade peach ice cream.  I have a Cuisinart ice cream maker from Williams Sonoma, but the old fashioned crank ones work just as well. Here is a surefire recipe for your basic vanilla base.  You can add whatever else you want. This recipe makes the best homemade vanilla ice cream ever.The only caveat, you, your family and friends need to eat  all of it. The reason is, after freezing any leftover ice cream, it will be hard as a rock to scoop out.

Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

3 cans Eagle Brand Condensed Milk
3 cans water
1 tsp. vanilla 
pinch of salt
enough whole milk to fill up the gallon container to the fill line
Freeze according to your ice cream maker instructions.  By the way, this recipe is for one gallon.


  1. Oh! Thank you for that recipe.
    I have the same ice cream freezer.
    The peaches look just wonderful!
    I hope they have them at the farmers market this weekend!

  2. peaches- a favorite of mine-that and lemons. Your photographs are edible art. Pgt
