Glorious free-stone peaches from the South! One of those fruits that we have to wait and wait for, and then pick at just the perfect point of ripeness . . . not a moment earlier or later. I’ve brought a bag of these fuzzy gems home to my parents since it is my father’s favorite fruit. Arriving at nearly midnight, my parents were waiting up for me, whereupon my dad quickly devoured two peaches right on the spot! His exact words were, “Now this is what I call a peach!” Truly, they are summer treats to say the least.
But before leaving for my trip to the Midwest, my husband, Mr. M & P (meat and potatoes) whipped up a batch of fresh peach ice cream, using what has now become our favorite recipe from David Lebovitz. We’ve tried them all, and this is hands-down, the winner!
This recipe is so unique in that there is sour cream included. I really think that is why this version is so creamy! This time we made peach sundaes with a slice of plain pound cake, a layer of peaches, topped with the ice cream. YUM-MO!
I hope you try this recipe and enjoy it . . . and please let me know what you think!
