2 large eggs

3/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp sugar

2 cups heavy whipping cream

1 cup milk

3 Tbsp good-quality freeze-dried coffee

**Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes.  Whisk in the sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely blended, about a minute more.  Add the cream, milk and 2 tablespoons of the coffee, and whisk to blend.

*Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze following manufacturer’s instructions.

*After the ice cream stiffens (about 2 minutes before it is “done”), add the remaining 1 tablespoon coffee, then continue freezing until the ice cream is ready.

*Makes 1 quart

Extra sugar is usually required when making fruit-flavored ice creams, but the proportion varies, depending on the natural sweetness of each fruit.  Bananas are especially sweet and require no additional sugar.  Raspberries, on the other hand, are extremely tart and require the greatest amount of sugar.

(Fruit… Proportion of fruit to sugar)

Bananas… no added sugar

Apples… 7 to 1

Strawberries… 4 to 1

Peaches… 4 to 1

Plums… 4 to 1

Pineapple… 4 to 1

Apricots… 3 to 1

Blackberries… 3 to 1

Cherries… 3 to 1

Raspberries… 2 to 1

The best way to capture the elusive flavor of summertime.  It’s best to use small peaches because they have more flavor and less water than the larger ones.

2 cups finely chopped ripe peaches, peeled

1 1/4 cups sugar

juice of 1/2 lemon

2 large eggs

2 cups heavy whipping cream

1 cup milk

*Combine the peaches, 1/2 cup sugar, and the lemon juice in a bowl.  Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours, stirring the mixture every 30 minutes.

*Remove the peaches from the fridge and drain the juice into another bowl.  Return the peaches to the fridge.

*Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes.  Whisk in the remaining 3/4 cup sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely blended, about 1 minute more.  Pour in the cream and milk and whisk to blend.  Add the peach juice and combine.

*Transfer the mixture to an ice ceam maker and freeze following manufacturer’s instructions.

*After the ice cream stiffens (about 2 minutes before it’s “done”), add the peaches, then continue freezing until the ice cream is ready.

*Makes a generous quart
