Peach Riesling Ice Cream...& everything in moderation...

...including moderation.
Sugar, dairy, alcohol.
All things I've tried to say goodbye to lately. Or at least, "Let's hang out a little less..."

And then, I rediscovered my ice cream maker. And decided that I had to create an ice cream recipe from scratch, since I'd never invented one of those before.

Thus, Tablespoons of Indulgence was born. 
Indulgence > Moderation
At least it's by the tablespoon and not the gallon. I'm gonna pitch it to Costco next, though...

Homemade Peach Riesling Ice Cream
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup and 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 3 fresh peaches, pitted and chopped (but really, the peachier the better; don't feel limited to 3)
  • 1-1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup milk (I used almond milk, because that's what I keep on tap)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (although, more is not a bad thing)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Riesling. Riesling. Riesling. Okay, 1 cup...but again, this is just a suggestion, not to be set in stone
So plenty of people would make this without cooking the egg part. I, however, involved the stove. Which is a great appliance, and not a man's name. (That was me trying to reference my favorite scene of Bridesmaids. Queue scene to 8:20.)

First matter of you own an ice cream maker? If not, I'm so sorry, but don't proceed. Also, go buy one. 
For those of you who do, blend the eggs and peaches together in a blender or food processor. Pour into a medium pot and simmer egg-peach mixture with sugar, heavy cream, milk, vanilla and salt. 
IMPORTANT: DO NOT ADD WINE YET. Unless you want to be a party pooper and cook out all of the alcohol.
Refrigerate mixture until cool (1-2 hours).
Pour into ice cream maker.
Press go.
Oh...and the best part. Zeeeee WINE! 
Free pour. 

Pardon me while I become an obese alcoholic for a hot second.

I have a confession. I have an icecream maker, and I've never used it. Its sat in my closet for over 5 years now. But wine in icecream? Okay, I may go bust it out. Any excuse, right?

HAAA! Mads. You couldnt be obese if you tried. ive known you since you were a little girl (middle school girls are little girls to me) and you have only ever been an adorable, beautiful, hottie.
hence why every boy we've ever known has been in love with you at one point or another..including my own brother(s)!

That sounds incredible. Maybe I will give it a shot when I am somewhere back around my ice cream maker!

ice cream maker was already the #1 thing on my list of appliances to buy when i grow up and this has not changed my mind in the least. except i think im gonna make up my own version somehow substituting the peaches for raspberries or something and the wine for umm, rum. i don't mess around with my alcohol.

also, i'm physically not capable of holding back the laughing tears in that scene. i tried watching it last night while i was doing homework and obviously that did not work. how is she so funny?!

"auf wiedersen" (i'm sure i spelled that wrong).

and GO YOU for makin up your own recipe. also, your pics are so slammin.
