Fresh Peaches & Peach Ice Cream

Driving in Texas hill country means passing a multitude of peach orchards and thus, farm stands selling peaches, peach pie, and peach ice cream.  One stand in particular caught my eye yesterday, as it was self-serve: you just pick out your produce and plop your money in a box.  I didn’t know anyone was still using the honor system – it was so refreshing!  We stopped and stocked up on peaches and tomatoes (the two things we can eat on the road with no kitchen or utensils), and boy were they good.  So was the fresh peach ice cream.  If everyone had access to produce like this, convincing people to eat their fruits & veggies would be easy!

Want to make fresh peach ice cream at home?  This is my favorite ice cream recipe (it happens to be low fat, but it’s the taste and consistency that makes it my favorite), which you can make into any flavor you wish.  For peach, simply chop lots of fresh peaches and add.  If you prefer frozen yogurt, try this one.

    MMmm… Peach stand… Looks like an awesome place! There is a strawberry farm here (Nor. Ca.) that uses the honor system too. You should come check it out!
