This week Tommi of Brown Interior selected Honey-Peach Ice Cream for our Tuesdays with Dorie recipe. It can be found on page 437 of Baking, From my home to Yours. This is a nice recipe for ice cream. It has a velvety smooth texture. It was quick and easy and had a great peach flavor. My peaches were not all that large so I had to use 6 to have the 2 pounds. I only added one chopped peach to the mixture at the end of the freezing. The flavor and texture are even better after they blended overnight.

Honey- Peach Ice Cream
I grew up on a farm in the 60's. Shopping trips to the large stores in the downtown area of the nearest city only came around a few times a year. At Christmas time, or when I needed new shoes, and always for back to school clothes. When I was about 7 or 8 my mother and a few of her friends and their daughters went on such a trip. I remember buying a light blue blouse that I wore to have my school picture made later that year and a new red winter coat. But what I remember most about that shopping trip was lunch. We stopped by the lunch counter at Woolworth's to eat. I don't remember anything special about lunch until it was time for dessert. Behind the counter there were mirrors everywhere with signs proclaiming the special ice cream flavor of the day. It was peach, and it looked so cool and refreshing. Everyone decided they had to have some. Everyone except me. I was a very picky eater and I only liked plain chocolate or vanilla ice cream. I was scolded by all the mothers for not trying something different. I would be missing out. I don't remember what flavor I ordered that day but I remember trying a spoonful of my mother's and I was hooked. It was cold and heavenly and picky me loved it.
