Ingredients

For the Ginger Ice Cream:

For the Grilled Peaches:

  • 6 firm, ripe peaches

Instructions

For the Ginger Ice Cream:

  • Place the half and half, cream, sugar, egg yolks, vanilla and salt in a medium sauce pot. Place over medium heat and whisk well. Slice the piece for fresh ginger into several slices and toss into the pot.
  • Bring the mixture to a low boil, whisk well and remove from heat as soon as it thickens a little. (Watch that it doesn't boil over.) Place a lid on the pot and allow the mixture the steep for 20+ minutes.
  • Place in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or over night. If in a hurry, place in the freezer for 1 hour, until cold but not frozen. Once chilled, pour through a sieve into the bowl of an electric ice cream maker. Turn the ice cream maker on and churn until thick, 20-30 minutes. Once the ice cream in "soft-serve" consistency, pour the chopped crystallized ginger in. Add 1/2 cup if you like ginger. Add 1 cup if you LOVE ginger!
  • Allow the ginger to mix through, then turn off the machine and spoon into an airtight container. Freeze until ready to serve.

For the Grilled Peaches:

  • Cut the peaches in half and remove the pits. Place on a hot grill, face-down. Grill 2-3 minutes per side. Serve the warm grilled peaches with a scoop of candied ginger ice cream!
