Soft Peach-Amaretto
"Ice Cream"

Yield:6 servings
This Soft Peach-Amareto "Ice Cream" recipe comes from the book Process This! by Jean Anderson. Frozen peaches, sugar, Amaretto, OJ concentrate and chilled non-fat evaporated milk are "churned" in the food processor for mere minutes and produce a soft, fluffy, and light frozen mixture somewhat like soft-serve ice cream. Since this is a fairly light recipe, you can eat this yummy mixture with very little guilt. Serve it immediately, as it will not keep well.

Peach Ice Cream

1 16oz package solidly frozen, unsweetened sliced peaches
1/3 cup superfine sugar
2 Tbsp. frozen orange juice concentrate
2 Tbsp. Amaretto
pinch freshly grated nutmeg
pinch salt
1 can (12oz) 2% evaporated milk, chilled

Place all ingredients except the milk in a heavy duty food processor fitted with the metal chopping blade. Churn/process for 1 1/2 minutes non-stop. Scrape down the work bowl.

With the motor running, drizzle the evaporated milk down the feed tube and continue churning until the mixture is soft and fluffy, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes more.

Serve immediately, or chill in the freezer for up to 1 hour to make it more solid.

Notes: While this is best made with the Amaretto, 1 tsp almond extract may be substituted. Leftovers may be refrozen, but will not be as smooth as when freshly made though re-processing may help.

Variations: Use any frozen fruit you like and switch up the liqueur flavor to suit your taste. If you want to be really decadent, use heavy whipping cream instead of evaporated milk!
