Whenever I think of summer fun back in the day,
I always think of playing and swimming with all of my cousins--
and I have a lot of cousins.
One of my fondest childhood memories involves sitting on a porch cranking an old-timey ice cream churn.
Everyone had to take their turn,
because it was a ton of work and that made it a lot more fun.
We always either had my
Aunt Marion's tutti-frutti ice cream or peach ice cream.
I haven't attempted the tutti-frutti yet,
but here is my take on homemade peach.
(I hope I don't let any of you cousins down.)
Cinnamon Peach Ice Cream with Cinnamon Sugared Pecans
5-6 medium peaches, peeled and cut into small pieces
1/2 cup water
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
few drops of freshly squeezed lemon juice
cinnamon-sugared pecans for garnish
Garnish with chopped cinnamon-sugared pecans.
