This Traditional Georgian Family Peach Ice Cream Recipe Actually Left Me S(peach)less

I recently tried out this peach ice cream recipe from Taste of Home, and it was incredible. I had never made ice cream from home before, and this recipe was super easy to follow and it turned out amazing! It was also great that I had most of the necessary ingredients at home already.

I spread out the process over the course of two days, but on both days the necessary steps only took me about 45 minutes each. As a beginner, I was absolutely amazed at how simple the recipe was and how incredible the final product tasted.

If you want to try it, too, follow the instructions below!


- 4 eggs
- 1 1/4 cups sugar, divided
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 4 cups whole milk
- 2 cans (14 ounces each) sweetened condensed milk
- 1-3/4 pounds fresh peaches, peeled and sliced


  1. In a large saucepan, whisk together eggs, 1 cup of sugar, and salt until blended. Then stir in milk. Cook the mixture over low heat until mixture is thick enough to coat a spoon and a thermometer reads at least 160. Do not allow to boil. Remove from heat. Note: I focused on the reading of the thermometer more so than the thickness of the mixture. Once it surpassed 160, I removed it from the heat and went on to the next step even though it was not as thick as I had anticipated.
  2. Put the mixture into a separate bowl, and place the bowl into a pan of ice water. Stir occasionally for 2 minutes. Stir in the sweetened condensed milk.
  3. Place plastic wrap over the mixture. Refrigerate several hours or overnight.
  4. After refrigeration, mash peaches with the remaining sugar in a small bowl. Let stand for 30 minutes. Fill a container ¾ of the way with custard and stir in peach mixture. Note: I mashed the peaches as recommended and it turned out fine, but if you're looking for a smoother taste, I would purée the fruit instead.
  5. Freeze ice cream for 2-4 hours and serve in a bowl with fresh peaches or mint leaves.

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.
