After making this a second time, I had to add one more star to my previous rating. I used 4 cups of fresh, very ripe peaches from my father-in-law's trees. I mashed them pretty thoroughly to avoid the icy chunks of fruit I encountered the first time around. I followed the recipe pretty closely, but I did sub almost 2 cups of half and half for some of the whole milk, as I needed to use it before it expired. It was very good the first day, but did get pretty hard in the icebox overnight. This is pretty typical for homemade ice cream, and I kick myself every time I forget adding a little vodka (or peach schnapps, maybe?) to prevent it. I just removed the ice cream from the freezer a few minutes before serving. I'd like a little more peach flavor, so I'll add a little more fruit next time, and maybee a little extra sugar. I also used one tablespoon of vanilla and one teaspoon of almond flavoring. The hint of almond was nice, but I might try one and a half tablespoons of vanilla next time. In summary, this is a very easy recipe that yields pretty good ice cream. This would be a great choice for anyone new to making ice cream at home.
