Ah, the quintessential summer fruit. The peach.
What better way to celebrate this juicy fruit but with ice cream. Peaches are at the peak of their season in mid-summer and ice cream is the perfect summer treat!
Start by peeling the peaches. The easiest way to do without loosing any delicious juicy fruit is to give it a quick blanch. Boil a large pot of water. Once it comes to a rolling boil, carefully lower in the peaches and turn off the heat.
Leave the peaches in the water for 1 to 2 minutes. Drain and drop into ice water to keep from cooking them. Put them in the refrigerator and let them cool completely.
Carefully break the skin and peel it off of the fruit.
Cut the peaches into chunks and add them to a blender with the condensed milk. Puree until smooth.
Next, place the whipping cream in a large bowl with the sugar and cream of tartar. Whip until it forms stiff peaks.
Carefully fold the peach mixture into the whipped cream and continue folding until they are well incorporated together.
Pour the mixture into a container (or tart shells) and freeze until firm.
Scoop into a dish and garnish with mint sprigs! Just plain delicious!
