Author Notes: Notice that this recipe calls for no actual buttermilk. The combination of peaches roasting in the lemon juice and adding those lemon-soaked peaches to the ice cream base while it’s churning creates wonderfully tangy buttermilk (which also cuts the sweetness of the ice cream.) amber wilson | for the love of the south

Makes: 1 quart

Ingredients

For Roasted Peaches

  • 1 1/2 pounds of unpeeled, pitted, halved peaches
  • 2 tablespoons of good, local honey
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon

For Ice Cream

  • 2 cups of heavy cream
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • roasted peaches (recipe below)
  • 1 tablespoon of good, local honey

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Toss all of the ingredients in a bowl making sure to coat the peaches in honey and lemon juice. Place the peach halves cut side up on a roasting pan fitted with parchment paper. Roast peaches for 20-30 minutes until the peaches slightly char.
  3. Cut peaches into chunks and set aside.
  4. In a mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, whisk the egg yolks and sugar until the mixture is pale yellow and thick.
  5. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan allow the heavy cream to heat just until it simmers. Add the hot cream in a steady stream to the egg mixture, whisking constantly.
  6. Using an ice cream maker, add the chilled ice cream base to the ice cream machine. Once the mixture has thickened, add the roasted peaches 1 tablespoon at a time and 1 tablespoon of honey. Once the machine has finished, scoop the ice cream into a freezer proof container and freeze for at least 2 hours. Enjoy!

Looks great...except that there doesn't appear to be any buttermilk in the recipe, even though it's calledHoney Roasted Peach *Buttermilk* Ince Cream.

In the introduction to the ice cream, I explain how the combination of the cream with the lemon juice actually creates the buttermilk. So you are making the buttermilk in the recipe, that's why it's not listed as an ingredient! Hope that helps!
