Peach Ice Cream Recipe - - 18th Vintage Recipe Thursday


July is National Ice Cream Month!!


Here's another ice cream recipe for the 2nd annual We All Scream For Ice Cream Roundup and also for the weekly Vintage Recipe Thursday, both right here at Joy Of Desserts.

Vintage Recipe Thursday is meant to preserve your own original vintage family recipes, or out-of-print, copyright-free recipes from old cookbooks, magazines, newspapers. You're invited! Get the details by clicking to the Vintage Recipe Thursday Homepage. I post recipes from the Searchlight Recipe Book, first published in 1931. My 16th printing is from 1943. What will you post?

I found a great illustration for this vintage recipe. I never had the chance to eat ice cream at a Howard Johnson's, but I do understand they were yummy and a missed part of the "good-old-days."

So we'll just have to make ice cream ourselves. Especially since the "half gallon" cartons have shrunk again this summer! Did you notice?

Last summer, prices went up first, then the cartons shrunk to 1.75 quarts, instead of 2 quarts for a real half gallon. This summer, most of the cartons state "48 ounces" all of a sudden. That's to confuse us more easily, but 48 ounces is 1.50 quarts, so they took away another .25 quart this year. I didn't see the prices being slashed though, only the carton size!

Fight back! Make delicious, home-made ice cream!

Peach Ice Cream Recipe

  1. Joy, We made vanilla & strawberry ice cream this summer. Now that peaches are in season & so sweet, we'll def'ly have to make these. SC produces more peaches than Georgia; they are so juicy and wonderful. Gotta run to a market to pick some up to make your recipe! Thanks, Roz

  2. Bella: Glad to learn something new. I didn't realize SC produced more peaches than Georgia. I always associate them with Georgia, the peach state, especially having been to Atlanta where every other street (it seems) is named Peachtree, and "all" the postcards and souvenirs sport peaches. We produce quite a few peaches in CA, too, but I don't now any numbers compared to other states.

  3. I adore all of these wonderful vintage recipes! This peach icecream is a classic for sure! My husband adores all things peach! MMMmm topped with perhaps some praline sauce? :)

  4. Here's mine!

  5. Jennifer: Thank you. I love praline, and yes, it would go well with so many ice cream flavors. I hope you'll be participating in Vintage Recipe Thursdays.
    Just stopped by your 2 blogs: BEAUTIFUL!

    Bec: Thank you for participating in the ice cream roundup. I put your link up this morning on the roundup post.
