Growing Up In South Alabama

Growing up in South Alabama, the summers were always HOT.  The heat was a great excuse to make some homemade ice cream.  My dad loved homemade ice cream, and we would make this delicious treat often.  We usually made either fresh peach or fresh strawberry ice cream.  Fresh, juicy, sweet strawberries and peaches remind us of summer, but when you add them to homemade ice cream, something magical happens.  In other words, your taste buds come alive and help you make summertime memories that will last a lifetime.

Homemade Peach Ice Cream recipes

Old Fashion Hand Crank Ice Cream Maker

Growing up, we did not have an electric ice cream maker.  My dad had four children that all had to take turns turning the crank by hand on the Old Fashion Hand-Crank Ice Cream Maker.  Maybe it was all our hard work that made the ice cream taste even better.  We could not wait until it was finished, and we could eat them; cold, smooth, creamy, mouth-watering treat.

Cuisinart Ice Cream

Today, I am somewhat sad to say that we do not have an Old Fashion Hand-Crank Ice Cream Maker for my children to experience the fruits of their labor.  I have not seen an Old Fashion Hand-Crank Ice Cream maker in a very long time. The next time I do, I might just buy it to make this delicious Fresh Peach Ice Cream.

Electric Ice Cream Maker

We have an electric ice cream maker.  It is a Cuisinart ice cream maker that does not require ice or rock salt. All that is necessary is to freeze the container. The disadvantage of the one I have is that it is small and only holds 2 quarts of ice cream.

4 to 6 Quarts of Ice Cream

This Peach Ice Cream recipe is for 4 to 6 quarts of ice cream. We need that much for our big family, especially if we have anyone else over to eat ice cream.  I end up making the ice cream in two batches that work fine if I have time to prepare it ahead of time.  No matter what ice cream machine you use, get it out, and make some memories with your family by making and eating delicious homemade ice cream.  After all, nothing says summer like homemade ice cream.
