Cook: 20 Minutes
Chill: 4 Hours
Freeze: 25 Minutes


4 cups peeled, diced fresh peaches (about 3 pounds)
1 cup peach nectar
1/2 cup sugar
3 egg yolks
4 cups milk
1 cup half-and-half
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Garnish: sliced fresh peaches


Combine first 3 ingredients in a medium bowl.

Process peach mixture, in batches, in a food processor until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides. Set aside.

Whisk together yolks and milk in a heavy saucepan over medium heat; cook, stirring constantly, 20 minutes or until mixture thickens and coats a spoon. Do not boil.

Remove from heat; whisk in peach mixture, half-and-half, lemon juice, and ground cinnamon. Cover and chill 4 hours.

Pour mixture into freezer container of a 6-quart electric ice-cream maker. Freeze according to manufacturer's instructions. (Instructions and times will vary.) Garnish, if desired.
