Homemade Peach Ice cream

Who could resist this advertisement? Not me!  

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.

Homemade Ice Cream Recipe

4 eggs well beaten
1 C sugar
1 T flour
1/4 t. salt

1/2 pt. whipping cream

Mix eggs, sugar, and flour. Add milk and cook over moderate heat until thickened slightly, stirring constantly. Remove from head and add last 4 ingredients. Add peaches or other fruit if desired. Pour into a 1 gallon freezer and add milk until it is 3/4 full. Freeze.

Thanks for stopping by today. Leave a comment and tell us your favorite flavor of ice cream.

Happy Reading and Writing!



  1. Your recipe sounds yummy and looks very easy. I've copied it. Hope you enjoyed historic Route 66. I hear the music to the lyrics 'Get your kicks on Route 66,' and see Tod and Buz in their corvette whenever Route 66 is mentioned. Someday...

  2. While French Vanilla is my favorite ice cream. I love peach ice cream too. Love that Chick-Fil-A has those peach shakes in the summer. Actually, I'm willing to try out most new flavors if they are remotely interesting.

  3. We went to Clifton's today. It was great.

  4. Wow...Amazing.
    Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. I made roasted pistachio paste a few days ago and was going to do a traditional custard based ice cream with it. I saw your recipe and I decided to give it a go. It really exceeded my expectations. The texture is like a semifreddo, which I love, and it’s great that it has no eggs or thickeners. Wonderful. I’ll be blogging about my pistachio ice cream and will certainly give you the credit you so deserve.
    Thank you so much for the ice cream recipe! I am also providing this type of service. This type of information is awesome for me.
    Thanks for this awesome knowledge.
