I did end up making Rose's Perfect Peach Ice Cream.  I tastes really really good but until I have a proper sized portion, the jury is out on whether it was worth the work.  I will say that it is very scoopable, which is always big in my book.   I didn't use the Ninja Creami but churned it in my electric Breville.  I still have 6 peaches left and am going to try your recipe.  Am I correct in thinking that I can scale it to however much puree I get from those 6 peaches?  How well does it scoop? 

 

Yes, you can scale it accordingly. I find it very scoopable when it's first churned. The leftovers do tend to set to a hard state. I wouldn't call them icy but they get firm.

Isn't this sherbet?

 

Not with dairy, as I understand it. Is there too little cream / milk to qualify as ice cream?

It seems as if (from the recipe) it's fruit puree with an addition of milk (or cream), as opposed to milk (or cream) with the addition of fruit.  The first would be sherbet, and the latter would be ice cream (I think).  I guess the Rose's recipe falls in the middle...not quite ice cream, not quite sherbet?

That's a nice reference. Thank you! It does look as though our recipe is sherbet, or possibly gelato depending on which particular dairy I use.

I made both and gave this bowl to my neighbour.  It contains a scoop each of Rose's recipe, and a scoop of @Smithy's, the lighter colored one.  They are both delicious, but Rose's was easier to scoop.  I'll let you know what the neighbour has to say.  I did add some glucose to @Smithy's recipe, 5% by weight but I don't think it did anything for scoopability, however, the result was smooth and not iciy.

Strawberry ice cream using the strawberries that we got at the farm. Used Serious Eats recipe. It’s really good and strawberry-y for sure. I think these berries were so sweet, I could have used less sugar.

We have the same ice cream maker!  My only quibble with it is that it's a pain getting the ice cream out of it before it starts to melt.

 

I love strawberry ice cream.  Our berries aren't out yet but I'm going to find the serious Eats recipe and make it when the berries are out.

 

Edited to add:  they have several recipes on their site.  Which one did you use?

Yeah, I agree. It's not the easiest to scrape out.

Thank you, @RWood.  I have printed the recipe.  Is it white or golden corn syrup that you use?

I used white.
