Caramelized Peach Buttermilk Ice Cream Recipe

Posted on: August 5th, 2017 by Taryn Jeffries 2 Comments

Growing up and spending time with my grandmother, I have so many wonderful memories of her. One thing everyone knew about her was that she loved peaches, any way and any how! When I was younger we didn’t have the luxery of ice cream machines and had to make all our small batches by hand with lots and lots of cranking. It was serious work but the end result was always worth the arm cramps.

Pastry Chef Ana Garza, of elements at Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa, has created a version that I know would render my grandmother speechless! We’ll be making this version very soon, but I’m a little sad that my boys won’t have to put so much work into it. I wonder if I can find one of those old style ice cream makers on eBay?

    The ingredients for the compote call for housemade Vanilla Bean Gelato however the instructions say vanilla extract. I’m assuming that this is supposed to be 1T vanilla extract and not gelato. Can you confirm this? If not, what is it supposed to be?

    • I just double checked the recipe I received as well as the ingredients and although I transferred it as it was sent to me, I think that it should be vanilla extract. I have updated the recipe to reflect that. Thanks so much for pointing that out to me, Dan!
