Locally grown fruit is the best part of summer and Georgia Grown peaches are one of my absolute favorites. Last week I bought a box of “scratch and dent” peaches at Jaemor Farms. While they may not be as pretty as the first quality peaches, they are perfect for making ice cream and peach sorbet.
Here’s a delicious Peach Sorbet recipe inspired by Martha Stewart, no ice cream maker required, just your food processor.
Georgia Grown peaches must be sweeter then the peaches Martha gets, as I was able to increase the quantity of fruit and decrease the quantity of sugar.
- 8 Peaches, ripe
- 1/2 cup Demerara Sugar
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon vanilla, best quality
- 2 pinches salt
Make a simple syrup by warming 1/2 cup of water and stirring in 1/2 cup demerara sugar until dissolved. Refrigerate until cold.
Peel and slice peaches, catching and using all the juice. Freeze until firm.3. Put frozen peaches in food processor with chopping blade, pulse to break down a bit. Add simple sugar mixture, lemon juice, vanilla and two pinches of salt. Process until smooth and creamy.4.Too soft? Place in a container in the freezer for a bit to firm up. Top with Unicoi Preserves Salted Caramel Peach Spread.Share this Recipe
