Peach Ice Cream

Today is national peach ice cream day. Here in southern Illinois there are peach orchards in a few different places none better known to our family than the Rendleman Orchards. The orchard has been a family farm selling their good for over 100 years. The delicious juicy peaches that can be found there are perfect to create into delicious recipes like peach ice cream.

1 1/3 lbs. ripe peaches (about 4 large peaches)
1/2 cup water
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
a few drops freshly squeezed lemon juice
Peel the peaches, slice them in half, and remove the pits. Cut the peaches into chunks and cook them with the water in a medium, nonreactive saucepan over medium heat, covered, stirring once or twice until soft and cooked through, about 10 minutes.
Remove from heat, stir in the sugar, then cool to room temperature.
Puree the cooked peaches and any liquid in a blender or food processor with the sour cream, heavy cream, vanilla and lemon juice until almost smooth but slightly chunky.
Chill the mixture thoroughly in the refrigerator (overnight is best) then freeze it in your ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions.
