Stone fruit season is here again, and what better way to celebrate it’s arrival than with a tasty homemade ice cream recipe in honor of today’s National Peach Ice Cream Day? At Stemilt, all of our peaches and nectarines are grown organically (and certified organic too) and this week marked the start of our harvest for these delicious, Washington-grown summer fruits.
It’s fitting that organic peaches are being picked fresh from our trees right now because July 17th is National Peach Ice Cream Day in the United States! To help you celebrate this peachy event, grab some Artisan Organics peaches from your store and give this easy recipe for homemade peach ice cream a try!
Missing an ice cream maker or churner? No problem! I followed a simple, no-churn ice cream recipe from Picky Palate but made it with yellow peaches instead of white peaches since they are fresh off the tree here at Stemilt (and much easier to find at grocery stores). If you’re dairy-free, consider making my easy Peach Sorbet recipe from last year to celebrate this special day. Happy National Peach Ice Cream Day!
