First off, let’s brown the butter. Melt the butter in a small sauce pan over medium heat. My tip for brown butter is to heat it slowly and have a heat-proof container near by to pour the brown butter into. If you have the heat too high, it is very easy to burn the butter instead of browning it. Stir the butter occasionally until it starts to foam. Once it starts to foam, pay extra attention to the bottom of the butter. As soon as it starts getting slightly brown/caramel in color, remove it off the heat and pour it into the heat proof container. This will not allow the residual heat from the sauce pan to over-brown your butter. Set the butter aside and allow it to cool. Next step for the Smoked Peach Brown Butter Frozen Custard is to create the custard. In a food processor, blend together the milk, cream, brown butter, honey, and egg yolks. Heat the mixture in a double boiler until it reaches 170ºF while continuously stirring it. You do not want to overheat a custard or else you will end up with a bowl of scrambled eggs. Strain the custard into a metal mixing bowl sitting in an ice water bath. Mix in your vanilla extract and allow the mixture to cool completely.

The next steps for the Smoked Peach Brown Butter Ice Cream all depends on whether or not you own an ice cream machine. If you do, you want to pre-chill the custard and make the ice cream as directed by your ice cream machine’s manufacturer. While the ice cream is in a soft serve state, add in the smoked peaches. If you do not own an ice cream machine, follow this simple instruction from Food and Wine. It is super simple and very handy if you don’t own an ice cream machine. Instead of cherries and pistachios like in the video, you will be folding in the smoked peaches for my Smoked Peach Brown Butter Frozen Custard. This is not covered by the ingredients list above, but if you want, you can make a smoked peach reduction and serve it with the ice cream. It is super simple: smoke two additional peaches and slice them. In a skillet over medium heat, heat 2 tbsp butter, 2 tbsp honey, ¼ tsp lemon zest, ½ tsp Cinnamon, Crushed Pralined Pecans and sliced smoked peaches. Cook until most of the moisture is gone and the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. That is it. Now that the Smoked Peach Brown Butter Frozen Custard is chilled, scoop, serve and enjoy with all your friends and family. Don’t be selfish, sharing is caring!
