Klein Family Homemade Texas Peach Ice Cream
1 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 pint whipping cream
1 can Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk
1 quart skim milk
1 quart mashed up Texas peaches (skinned, seeded)
Ice cream freezer
Whip the eggs to a froth with a whisk. Add the eggs to the milk and bring the milk and egg mixture just to a simmer over low to medium-low heat on the stove. Stir constantly so that the mixture does not scorch. (Use a double boiler if you have one.) After the mixture begins to just simmer, remove from heat and stir in the sugar, salt, vanilla, whipping cream, and the sweetened condensed milk. Mix thoroughly.
Pour the ice cream mixture in the ice cream freezer bucket of your ice cream maker and chill in the refrigerator until it is thoroughly cold. This will take several hours. Be sure to leave enough room in the bucket to add the peaches after the ice cream is partially frozen.
Freeze the ice cream as per the instructions on your individual ice cream freezer. After the ice cream begins to get hard in the freezing process (approximately half way through freezing), unplug the motor, remove some of the ice and remove the lid. Be careful not to get any rock salt in the ice cream! Add the mashed up peaches to the ice cream mixture. Replace the lid, put the motor back on and replace the ice. Continue freezing until the motor almost stops or begins to strain to stir. The ice cream is done!
Remove the dasher and motor and if you wish repack the ice cream with ice so that it continues to harden. Ice cream will be soft when it first finishes.
Tip: We find it easiest to use really ripe peaches and mash them up with your hands after peeling and seeding. If your peaches are not as ripe, you can slice them first and then mash by hand or with a potato masher. Sprinkle the peaches with Fruit Fresh to help them keep from turning brown after peeling. We also recommend tasting the peaches and you may need or want to add a little sugar to them to taste, so that they are nice and sweet before you put them in the ice cream.
