Peach-y Keen Ice Cream

~Peach Ice Cream
1 1/2-2 cups fresh pureed peaches (about 4-6 peaches)
2/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups half-and-half
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon almond flavoring (extract)

In food processor/blender, puree peaches (peeling the peaches is optional).
Blend peach puree and all ingredients until very smooth.
Chill ice cream mix until cold, about 1-2 hours.
Pour mix into your ice cream machine and process according to manufacturer's directions.
It may be necessary to continue the"chill/beat" cycle for 15-30 minutes after the first cycle stops.
Note: Since fresh Peach Ice Cream is very soft, it maybe necessary to put it in your ice cream maker for an additional 45 minutes (or place in a bowl in freezer) if you prefer a firmer ice cream.
