Polo first brought the recipe for ice cream to Italy after a journey to Japan.
Italians then made ice cream by sending for ice from the surrounding hills. We
made this sherbet from peaches grown in our backyard in Africa.
2 cups diced and peeled ripe peaches
⅓ cup granulated sugar
1 ½ tablespoons fresh lemon juice
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon almond extract
1 cup half-and-half
In a blender, process the peaches, sugar, lemon juice, vanilla
extract, almond extract, salt and half-and-half. Pour into a
freezer bowl of an ice cream maker.
2. Freeze 30 minutes. Scoop into a plastic freezer container and
freeze until firm or leave in the freezer bowl and set the bowl
in the refrigerator freezer for another 30 minutes. This speeds
up the freezing process.
