Honey-Peach Ice Cream.....

This was just OK for us; not bad but not great, knock your socks off. I pureed all the peaches but it was still chunky; maybe if I had pureed the hell out of it the peach mixture it would have been smoother. I used 1 tablespoon of cointreau to help keep it soft but it still was a bit hard; flavor wise, I think using peach schnapps would have been the better choice. The peach flavor improved after a day or two but was never really peachy. I'm not a fruit ice cream person so will probably not make this one again, but it was still fun; I like to try recipes I normally would not even bother reading. And I love using my Cuisinart Ice Cream maker!!!
Thank you to Tommi of Brown Interior for an interesting recipe to try.

I left out the peaches, and really liked the honey flavor. I'm not a fruit ice cream person either, but like you said, I never would have tried this otherwise.

Sorry you didn't like the flavor. I have yet to taste my ice cream so I'm hoping for the best! It looks really delicious though!

I love the color of your ice cream. Too bad it wasn't your favorite.

It looks super. I really loved the color of this ice cream. I used apricots instead and mine was very apricoty.

It looks really nice. I felt exactly the same way about this ice cream; it was definitely worth trying, though.

Sorry you didn't like it more. It was a big hit at my house.

I don't usually like fruit ice cream (prefer it in sorbet or frozen yogurt) but peach is an exception. I think it's because I live in Ga... I have the same towel as that cherries one - I bought it from Crate and Barrel, I think.
