Roasted Peaches & Honey Ice Cream

Roasted Peaches & Honey Ice Cream

Two boxes of canning peaches are currently sitting in my kitchen. I haven’t really done a lot of canning so you can expect a few more peach recipes coming your way.  These peaches are Elberta peaches which are firmer and better for canning and freezing.

I’ve been noticing some roasted fruit recipes around on Pinterest and wanted to try my hand at roasting peaches.  I just tossed them with a little sugar and put them in the oven.  The results were great.  The peaches had a little chewier texture that I thought would be great in homemade ice cream.  I plan on roasting a few more and stirring them into oatmeal. They are gooood.

I sweetened the ice cream with honey and a little sugar and although it was really sweet, I loved the flavor of the honey with the peaches.  It was a huge hit with the family and  I will be making it again soon.  Homemade ice cream really is one of the best things of summer!  Like I said before, I’m enjoying every last second of this summer and I hope you are too!
