Homemade Peach Ice cream
My cousins and I discovered Clifton Orchard's peach stand about ten miles out of Canton, Texas, on our way home from Virginia a couple of weeks ago. Never one to pass up homemade icecream we stopped for a cup. Yummy!
My husband and I stopped again today on our way home from our tour of the east end of Route 66. We had a wonderful time and I'll blog about our trip later in the week.
Look at these beautiful peaches. In the picture above you can see the orchard in the background and below the large ice cream freezers. They have four freezers and an electric pulley type device is used to turn the crank. Thank goodness. I can't imagine having to turn them by hand.
If you're in the area during peach season, stop at Clifton's Orchard, State Hwy 19, Fruitvale, Texas. You won't be disappointed.
