Peaches And Cream Honey Ice Cream

If you’d rather make the ice cream with sugar, see this peach ice cream recipe.



  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 2/3 cup pure honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups half-and-half
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup fresh, very ripe peaches, sliced



  1. Whisk together the eggs, honey and salt in a medium bowl; set aside. Bring the half-and-half and sour cream to a full simmer in a medium saucepan.
  2. Add 1 cup of the simmering cream mixture to the bowl with the egg-honey mixture while whisking (to avoid scrambling the eggs); transfer the contents of the bowl to the saucepan with the remaining cream mixture in it. Simmer over medium-low heat, stirring constantly until the custard thickens enough to coat a spoon and the thermometer reads 170°F to 175°F, about 4 minutes (do not boil).
  3. Strain into a clean bowl and allow the steam to escape, before covering and chilling until cold, at least 3 hours and up to 1 day.
  4. Process the custard in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. During the last 2 to 5 minutes, add the peaches.
  5. Transfer to a bowl or tub and freeze until firm, at least 3 hours and up to 3 days.
