Fresh local peaches, usually available near the end of summer, are always delicious. Peaches are a great ingredient in cobblers, cakes, puddings, and frozen desserts, and they are also good on their own. Busy cooks like them because they can be prepped easily – simply dip them in boiling water for a few seconds, then plunge them in ice water; the entire skin then peels off. If it’s still hot weather in your area, you’ll want to make this easy Pineapple Peach Sorbet; it contains only 4 ingredients and is cool and refreshing. Pineapple Peach Sorbet also makes a great slush drink when dipped into a glass and covered with lemon-lime soda or orange juice. Use it as a base in a breakfast smoothie, or serve it in a punchbowl mixed with lemon-lime soda or orange juice; it will be a hit with everyone.
Automatic Ice Cream Makers are readily available, and by storing the insert in the freezer, ice cream or sorbet can be ready in 20-30 minutes of unsupervised time. Mixing the ingredients takes only a few minutes. This recipe makes enough to fill 2 automatic ice cream makers (1 quart capacity). If only one is available, the leftover mixture can be refrigerated until time to make the second batch.
