Celebrate National Peach Ice Cream Day!

July 17, 2015 | By | Comments (0)

I know, I know.  It seems like every day is national this-day or national that-day.  There really is a National Mushroom Day, a National Escargot Day, and a National Mayonnaise Day.  That one is kind of understandable, however, what with our love affair of Duke’s and Hellmann’s and our tendency to dollop a spoonful of either on sandwiches, potato salads, and fruit-topped iceberg lettuce wedges.

Another food holiday Southerners totally appreciate is National Peach Ice Cream Day. While we aren’t sure if Congress really recognized July 17 as a federal holiday, they should, and we should celebrate the day by enjoying a double scoop of that creamy sweet goodness that has brought cool relief to so many on countless sticky Southern afternoons.

Do you like to pick peaches and make your own ice cream?  This Summertime Peach Ice Cream, which received high ratings from our readers, uses vanilla pudding mix to help create the base.

Peach and Toasted Pecan Ice Cream once again pairs those two regional favorites – peaches and pecans!

For a lighter version, or not-quite-as-bad-for-you recipe, try this decadent Peach Cobbler Ice Cream with Bourbon-Caramel Sauce from our sister publication, Cooking Light.

Your food processor comes in handy with this No-Cook Peach Ice Cream recipe.

Do you have a favorite farm stand or u-pick orchard that serves homemade ice cream?  Care to share your memories of churning on the porch as a child?
