Fabulous Homemade Peach Ice Cream
3 cups sliced & chunked fresh peaches (peeled)
2 large cans evaporated skim milk (I used Pet brand)
4 large eggs
2-1/2 cups sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
Pour evaporated milk into large bowl and whisk until frothy. (an electric mixer may also be used)
In a separate bowl, beat the eggs well. Stir in sugar and vanilla extract. Pour the egg mixture into the bowl of evaporated milk and mix thoroughly.
Add fresh peaches and fold into mixture.
Pour mixture into ice cream bucket and add the 2% milk to the fill line.
Follow your ice cream maker's directions for churning.
(Mine took approximately 30 minutes to complete)
You can wrap a blanket or quilt around the ice cream maker to keep the ice cream set until it is all served or you transfer it to a container for freezing.
If you want the full fat flavor, you may substitute whole milk and regular evaporated milk in the recipe. I imagine the ice cream may be creamier if you do, but mine was almost perfect as is. I would have substituted Splenda for the sugar but didn't have enough on hand.

This recipe is one I modified somewhat from the original which was given to me by a preacher's wife in my old neighborhood, and I've made it several times
