This week it's officially hot. Summer vacation is right around the corner, and everyone's calendars seem full. Out come the sundresses, blockbuster movies and our favorite -- homemade ice cream.
We start by slicing four ripe peaches --leaving their skins on -- and placing them in a bowl with a tablespoon of fresh lemon juice and a ½ cup sugar. This sweet fruity mixture is to sit for two hours, covered and with the occasional stir.

After a day of being out in the heat we are happy to eat peach ice cream served with a ginger wafer cookie. The combination is out of this world. The yellow-fleshed peaches have just a hint of tart mixed with juicy sweetness. It's peaches and cream, summery and delicious. You can taste the sunshine in the fruit.
