  9. For the ice cream:
  10. Place peeled, chopped peaches in a medium bowl.
  11. Sprinkle sugar over the peaches and set aside for 15-30 minutes to macerate.
  12. Once the peaches have rested for 15-30 minutes, pour them into a blender or food processor and pulse a few times depending on the desired consistency.
  13. In a large mixing bowl, combine sugar, milk, salt, cream, vanilla, and lemon juice.
  14. Use a mixer on low speed or whisk until the sugar is dissolved.
  15. Add in the pulsed peaches and mix well.
  16. Cover and refrigerate 1-2 hours or overnight.
  17. When ready to make the ice cream, follow the directions for your ice cream maker.
  18. If using an ice cream maker like a Cuisinart, add the pecans and liqueur five minutes before mixing is complete - so 10 minutes or so after beginning the churning process.
  19. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

The ice cream will be creamy and soft. If a firmer consistency is desired, pour the ice cream into a freezer container, cover tightly and freeze for 2 hours.
