In the deep South you will find an electric ice cream maker is considered an essential household appliance to those of us who appreciate home made ice cream, sherbet, or sorbet.

Quick tips about making homemade ice cream

Ice cream salt or rock salt as it is often called is used rather than table salt because it lowers the freezing temperature of the ingredients. Mix the rock salt with ice. This forms a saltwater slush around the ice cream or sorbet, cooling the base enough it will thicken and freeze before the ice can melt.

It seems strange that the half-melting salt water can actually be colder than ice cubes…but it works! Thus, people have been enjoying this frozen dessert for ages.

  • Electric ice cream maker


  • 4 medium peaches ripe, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice


  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the water, sugar and lemon juice. Cook while stirring until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  • Carefully pour the liquid into the blender. (If using a glass blender pitcher, cool the liquid slightly prior to pouring to avoid a temperature shock to the glass.)
  • Place the peaches in the blender over the liquid.
  • Cover the blender and process until the peaches are completely smooth.
  • Allow the mixture to cool completely.
  • Transfer the peach mixture to the bowl of an electric ice cream maker. Make the sorbet according to the manufacturer's directions.
  • When the sorbet consistency is reached, move the sorbet from the ice cream maker’s bowl to an airtight freezer container.
  • Freeze until firm (several hours).
  • If the sorbet is too icy to scoop, allow to rest on the counter for 5 minutes prior to serving.
