Peaches are another reason why I love summer. It’s one of several fruits I look forward to all year long. So juicy, sweet, tasty…yum.
I bought a bunch of them recently and tossed around the idea of making a cobbler…a galette…a crisp…but something was pulling me toward the ice cream maker again.
A compelling force that’s been keeping my freezer stocked with delicious flavors since I got my gadget just weeks ago.
A power no one can deny.
Make this before peaches go away for the year!
