Here on the Western Slope of Colorado, just a few miles east of Grand Junction is the small town of Palisade, Colorado. This town is well know in this State and others for their wonderful "Palisade" peaches. People come from many, many miles away just to get these peaches.
Anyway, here is an original Ice Cream recipe from Carolyn Friesen, of Grand Junction, Colorado.
4 cups finely chopped peaches (in processor)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon salt
Heat above ingredients to boiling. Cook until thickened. Cool completely.
Add to cooled mixture and set aside:
1/2 teaspoon almond flavoring
Beat in a separate bowl:
4 eggs until lemon-colored
1 1/2 pints heavy cream
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Stir cooled ingredients into egg-cream mixture, and add:
1 cup coarsely chopped peaches
Pour into 1-gallon ice cream freezer. Fill to top with milk.
