Peach Gelato

October 21, 2011

 “Oh, you’re a “peach”.  I have heard this statement throughout my life, but is that a good or bad statement?  Well it is good if you have peach ice cream to go along with the statement.  I made this ice cream after a trip to Tennessee with a stop in South Carolina for the peaches.  These serving dishes seemed to be the perfect vessel for the wonderful and fresh ice cream.  I found them at a local ”
Goodwill Store” for $1.00 each and they say “Ice Cream is a Cheerful Food”.  Just looking at them makes you smile, but filled with ice cream will definitely make you cheerful!

Peach Gelato


  • 4 Lg. Peaches (or 6 Medium, approx. 1 lb.)
  • 1/2 C. Water
  • 1/2 C. Sugar
  • 1 C. Heavy Cream
  • 1 T.  Fresh Lemon Juice


  1. Slice peaches and remove pits/chop peaches; put in a bowl with the water and sugar and covered saucepan
  2. Heat peach mixture on medium heat until tender (approx. 10 min.); stir occasionally
  3. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature
  4. Puree the peaches and liquid in a blender or food processor until smooth
  5. Press the mixture through a mesh strainer to remove pieces of skin or fibers
  6. Stir in the cream and lemon juice
  7. Chill peach mixture in the refrigerator for about 2 hours; put in your ice cream maker and continue according to the manufacturer’s directions
  8. Store in a container in your freezer until ready to serve
