Fresh Georgia Peach Ice Cream


2 c finely chopped ripe peaches, peeled
1 1/4 c sugar
juice of 1/2 lemon
2 large eggs
2 c heavy or whipping cream
1 c milk


1. Combine the peaches, half cup of the sugar, and the lemon juice in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours, stirring the mixture every 30 minutes.
2. Remove the peaches from the refrigerator and drain the juice from the bowl, reserve. Return the peaches to the refrigerator.
3. Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk in the remaining 3/4 c sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely blended, about 1 minute more. Pour in the cream and milk and whisk to blend. Add the reserved juice and blend.
4. Transfer the mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze following the manufacturer's instructions.
5. After the ice cream stiffens (about 2 minutes before it is done), add the peaches and continue freezing until the ice cream is ready.
