Vanilla Ice Cream, Peaches & Dulce De Leche

Vanilla Ice Cream, Peaches & Dulce De Leche

The summer is over in Paris but will soon arrive to other hemisphere. I made this dessert a while back, for some friends that came over for dinner. I thought it would be a good idea to share one last summery dessert with you before I go on full fall mode!
It has homemade vanilla ice cream, it also has fresh and juicy peaches, and to top it all off dulce de leche. Yes, warm, delicious runny dulce de leche to make this dessert prefect. Most importantly super easy to prepare. Something you could serve at a dinner party.

Let me tell you that peaches and dulce de leche go so well together you won't even believe it. In my opinion, when you're able to get your hands on fresh peaches, the best way to enjoy them is in their pure state. They are kind of the perfect fruit. So, even though I first made a roasted peach version of this dessert, I finally decided to go with fresh peaches. If you want to try it, the result is also very good.

I finally got an ice-cream machine this summer :). So it has been a productive ice cream season. Still getting the hang of things in this area, but I thought I could share this simple, yet delicious vanilla bean ice cream. It's delicious, fairly easy to prepare and it has no strange ingredients (such as ice cream stabilizer, or atomized glucose) so you could easily reproduce it at home. As long as you have an ice cream maker, that is.

Because my blog is fairly new, and I am still working on recipes so that they are ready to share, this is the first ice cream recipe I could master. A little off-season, but still, who doesn't like ice cream in the winter! It's a year round treat really.
I hope you enjoy the dessert as much as we did!
Let's get to it!
Happy cooking.

Procedure
For the Vanilla Ice Cream
Prepare a bowl with iced water. It will serve to quickly chill your custard and avoid the temperature to continue to rise!
In a pot bring to a simmer the milk with half the sugar, the scraped vanilla seeds and de vanilla pod (to add more flavor).
Meanwhile, in a bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and the sugar. Important!! Once you add the sugar to the egg yolks, mix immediately, otherwise the sugar will cook/burn our yolk and that will have as a result grainy custard!

Once the milk has come to a simmer, pour half over the yolk/sugar mixture and whisk at the same time. Re pour the yolk/milk/sugar mixture over the remaining milk.
Bring the pot back over a medium heat, stirring all the time with a plastic/wooden spoon or spatula, and cook your custard.
The key question is when is your custard ready? If it boils, that means you’ve gone too far, and you should re start de operation. If you have a thermometer, once it reaches 82-83 degrees Celsius you can remove from the heat.

If you don't have a thermometer, you can tell when the custard is ready when it coats the back of a spoon. This means that when you run your finger through it, it leaves a nice mark, and your custard doesn't run across from one side of the mark to the other.
Place a clean bowl over the iced water bowl. Remove the custard from the heat and strain over a clean bowl. Stir from time to time.
Once it's at room temperature transfer onto a hermetic container and place a piece of plastic wrap directly on the surface to prevent a skin from forming. Refrigerate for minimum 12 hours. I let it rest for 24 hours.
Churn the ice cream according to the manufacturer's instructions, then transfer to a pre-chilled container. Freeze for 2 hours before eating.

For the Finishing Touches
Slice the peaches, I used half a peach per person. But this is completely up to you.
Warm up the dulce de leche.

Dispose the necessary bowls over the kitchen counter. Serve the peaches, cover with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and drizzle with the warm dulce de leche!
Bon appétit!

If you have some, top off with toasted almonds! This would be perfection.
