I am excited to share this recipe with you because it’s the first year my nectarine tree has yielded fruit besides one or two that the birds got before me. The nectarines look like peaches but inside is a beautiful white flesh with red around the pit. I adapted my ice cream recipe from Deep South Dish, Southern Peach Ice Cream.
Homemade White Nectarine Ice Cream
8 ripe white or regular nectarines (4 cups chopped)
1 cup sugar
1 12 oz. can of evaporated milk
1 3.75 package of Jello instant vanilla pudding
1 can 14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
2 cups half and half
2 cups heavy cream
Electric ice cream machine
Ice 5 pound bag
Step 1: Peel nectarines with vegetable peeler and cut into chunks. In a med-large bowl pour sugar over nectarines and squeeze juice of one half of lemon onto fruit and mix with spoon. Let fruit sit for about an hour.
Step 2: After an hour put nectarines in a food processor and pulse until almost all pureed.
Step 3: In large bowl whisk the evaporated milk and pudding until well blended. Add the fruit, sweetened condensed milk,half and half, and whipping cream. Pour into ice cream maker and process as directed.
Step 4: After the ice cream is done pour into freezer container and freeze until firm.
