Ingredients

  • 4 Large Peaches (Medium Dice)
  • 1/2 cup Peach Infused Balsamic Vinegar (EVOO Marketplace)
  • 1/2 cup Eureka Lemon Fused Olive Oil (EVOO Marketplace)
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon (Ground)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg (Ground)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cloves (Ground)
  • 2 Pie Crusts (Frozen)
  • 4 Remekins

Directions

Step 1
In a medium sized bowl whisk together Eureka Lemon olive oil and White Peach balsamic. Add diced peaches. Set in fridge and marinate for about 6 hours.
Step 2
After the 6 hours, drain the marinade from the peaches and set aside for use later.
Step 3
Place the peaches in a saucepan over low/medium heat. Add Sugar, Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Cloves to the peaches. Let simmer till peaches are soft about 15min.
Step 4
Line the ramekins with the pie crust making sure that the pie crust comes up to the top and is pressed securely to the sides. Trim off the extra pie crust that comes over the top of the ramekins. (save any remaining pie crust for step 5.)
Step 5

  • 8oz Egg Yolks
  • 2oz Mango Infused Balsamic Vinegar (May substitute for your favorite EVOO Marketplace Aged Italian Balsamic)

Continue to whisk until thick (7-10min). You may test thickness by running the back of your spoon through the ice cream base, if it coats the back of your spoon then you're good to go.
Step 3
Let your ice cream base cool for 10-15min with plastic wrap over it (make sure the plastic wrap is touching the base, this way you wont get a skin over it. Once cooler add your ice cream base to your ice cream maker.
