Prep Time30 minsCook Time1 hr 20 minsTotal Time1 hr 50 mins

No machine ice cream
 1 ½ cups whole milk
 1 ½ cups whipping cream
 ¾ cup sugar
 1 tbsp vanilla extract
 Celtic sea salt
 ice cubes
 1 cup rock salt
Grilled peaches:
 4 peachespitted and sliced in half
 2 tbsp grapeseed oildivided
 ½ cup crushed pecans
 ½ cup local honey

1

Prepare the ice cream: Mix the milk, whipping cream, sugar, vanilla extract and salt until the sugar is thoroughly dissolved. Pour mixture into a quart-size zip-loc freezer bag and seal.

2

Place some ice in a gallon-size zip-loc freezer bag. Add the bag with the ice cream mixture. Place the ice all around the bag with the mixture and on top. Pour in the rock salt all around the ice and seal the bag, getting as much air out as possible.

3

Wrap the bag in a thick towel and shake the mixture for 10 Minutes. When the mixture is like runny soft-serve, transfer it to a freezer container, cover and freeze to firm it up, about 60 Minutes.

4

Grill the peaches: Brush peach slices with oil. Turn your gas grill to medium heat and place the peaches face down on the grill for a few minutes, until tender and seared.

5

To plate, place 2 peach halves in a bowl or small plate and top with a scoop of ice cream. Split the crushed pecans into 4 portions and sprinkle on top of dessert. Drizzle honey over the plate for a little added sweetness and enjoy!

6

NOTES: The best peaches to use for grilling are ones that are firm, yet ripe. If too ripe they’ll burn easily due to the sugar content and if too tender, they will come out mushy. If you’re in a rush, grab your favorite ice cream at the store, it’s a secret – don’t worry, I won’t tell!
