Cinnamon Peach Ice Cream with Cinnamon Sugared Pecans

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

Combine the peaches, water, and sugar in a medium saucepan.  Cook over medium heat until the peaches are soft and sugar is melted.  Remove from heat and set aside to cool to room temperature. Once cooled, add the peaches, condensed milk, cream, vanilla, and lemon juice to a blender.  Blend until just combined.  (I left a few chunks of the peaches, but you can blend until smooth if desired.) Transfer the mixture to a bowl and thoroughly chill in the refrigerator.  Once chilled, transfer to your ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Garnish with chopped cinnamon-sugared pecans.
