Summer Sunday Dinner

We got some locally-grown peaches at the farmer's market this weekend while Danny's sister was in town. We made a peach-fused ham and some fabulous ice cream. It was the perfect summer Sunday dinner!

Ham with Peach Chutney


3 large peaches, peeled and diced (or 1 16 oz can of peaches)
1 apple, peeled and diced
1/4 C. minced onion
1/2 C. Apple Cider vinegar
1/2 C. Brown Sugar
1/4 C. Sliced Almonds (optional)

1 Spiral Sliced Ham
1/2 glaze packet

Start heating your ham according to the package directions. Meanwhile, combine the first 6 ingredients in a medium sized sauce pan and bring to a boil. Allow to simmer for 20-25 minutes, stirring continuously until it begins to thicken. Remove from heat.

When it has cooled some, place chutney in a serving dish to be served with the ham, leaving about 1/2 cup of the chutney for the glaze. Blend the remaining chutney, return it to the pan and combine it with some water and 1/2 packet of the glaze that came with the ham. Bring to a boil and simmer until it thickens and use it to glaze the ham according to the instructions. Enjoy!

Georgia Peach Frozen Custard

1 Qt. Milk (I used skim so any should do)
1 1/4 C. Sugar, divided
1/2 tsp. Salt
4 eggs
2 14oz cans of sweetened condensed milk
3-4 large peaches, peeled and diced

In a large sauce pan, bring milk up to 175 degrees; stir in 1 cup of sugar and salt until dissolved. Whisk eggs separately. Add a small amount of hot milk mixture to the eggs. Return all to the pan, whisking constantly.

Cook and stir over low heat until it reaches 160 degrees and coats the back of a metal spoon.

Quickly cool by placing the pan in a bowl of ice water for 2 minutes. Stir in sweetened condensed milk and cover with plastic wrap, making sure to press it to the surface of the custard. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight.

When ready to freeze, mash peaches with the remaining sugar in a small bowl and let it stand for about 30 minutes. Add to the custard mixture and prepare according to your ice cream maker's instructions. When finished allow to harden in the freezer before serving.

The ice cream.....YUMMY. It was much more work then I have ever done for ice cream but worth it. I have the Cuisinart Ice Cream maker. It only took about 1/2 the mix. I will 1/2 it next time. I also used Fat Free Sweetened milk and it was still very creamy and good.
