BurNed Peach Ice Cream (soooo I cheated a little!)

Soooooooooooooo yummy!!!

2 cups half-n-half
1 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup peach preserves (not jelly)
1 vanilla bean, split and scraped
Pinch kosher salt
4 medium peaches, halved, seeded and grilled or broiled until brown
Combine all ingredients (including the bean and its pulp) in a large sauce pan and place over medium heat. Attach a frying or candy thermometer to inside of pan. (see note below) Stirring occasionally, bring the mixture to 170 degrees F. Remove from heat and strain into a lidded container. Cool mixture, then refrigerate mixture overnight to mellow flavors and texture.

Freeze mixture in ice cream freezer according to unit's instructions. The mixture will not freeze hard in the machine. Meanwhile, chop peaches roughly. Once the volume has increased by 1/2 and reached a soft serve consistency, add the peaches and continue turning to incorporate. Spoon the mixture back into a lidded container and harden in the freezer at least 1 hour before serving.

Orange Upside Cake..... (we have it for my Mom's birthday!)
post #4219 of 7869

It's an old Italian favorite. It's cooked cornmeal...thicker than, say Cream of Wheat. My Grandmother used to stir the cornmeal in a huge pot with a big wooden paddle...NOT a spoon, but a huge paddle! She called it the Polenta stick! She generally made it on Christmas, Easter and birthdays for those who LOVED it! I was one of them!

She always served it with tomato gravy and fried dough. Soooo good. Has anyone else ever had Polenta?

Jeanie...would you be willing to share the recipe for the Short Bread? Sounds yummy...
post #4228 of 7869
Carla, I most certainly will. I'll send it to you tomorrow and post it also. Shortbread consists of only three ingredients: flour, butter (real butter) and sugar. Mom got a recipe from a Scottish baker when she went home for a visit, and it's so easy! I'll go into more detail tomorrow.
post #4229 of 7869
Thanks so much Jeanie! I think I'll add that to my Christmas cookie baking list this year! :tounge2: I love short bread but have never had homemade. Can't wait to try it.

Thanks again!
post #4230 of 7869
I'm looking forward to that too! I almost bought some but then thought it was just too easy to make myself. I have a couple recipes, but an authentic Scottish one would be the bomb!!!
