Overlooked

I have no idea how this dessert we made was overlooked in the blogging process but somehow, it was.  When we had a small dinner at my house, we decided to make some ice cream.  Despite being out of season, we went all in for the peaches.  It was great.


Sadly, I am not sure why but the home made ice cream seems to melt incredibly quickly.  I wonder if everyone has this issue...

Fantastic, love all those vanilla bean flecks in there!

Homemade ice cream often melts more quickly than store-bought because it lacks the stabilizers included in commercial offerings. Their bases are often very thick to begin with, so even once melted, they're more like a pudding, so it's harder to tell when they're melting since they're still holding together so well.

Yes, I'm still very much immersed in my ice cream writing/research!

Peachy ice-cream - yum, though I am goign to wait for warmer weather to eat some. I agree that homemade icecream melts more, but that is because it doesn't use any artificial stuff.

Happy New Year to you Vic.

There are many ways to get a firmer texture, but one of the easiest is to cook the base into a custard with 1 - 2 tablespoons of cornstarch. Cool completely before churning. That should help it stay stable longer!

That looks so delicious...! I've never been brave enough to attempt my own icecream at home.
