Instructions Checklist
  • If husks have not been removed from corn, remove and discard. Use a vegetable brush to remove silks; rinse. Place 1 ear of corn at a time in a shallow pan. Holding the ear at an angle, use a sharp knife to cut down across the tips of the kernels at two-thirds depth. Using the dull side of the knife; scrape the corn cob to release the milky juices into the pan. Measure 3 cups cut corn with its juices.

Pour corn mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a large heavy saucepan, pressing on solids with back of a spoon; discard solids. Repeat with the remaining 1-1/2 cups corn and the 1 cup half-and-half. Add sugar, egg yolks, peach preserves, cinnamon, and nutmeg to corn mixture in saucepan; whisk until combined.

To check the custard for doneness, swipe a finger across the back of a metal spoon. When the custard is done, the line made by your finger will remain without the custard running back together.

To ripen ice cream in a traditional-style ice cream freezer, after churning, remove the lid and dasher and cover the top of freezer can with waxed paper or foil. Plug the hole in the lid with a small piece of cloth; replace the lid. Pack the outer freezer bucket with enough ice and rock salt to cover the top of the freezer can, using 4 cups ice to 1 cup salt. When using an ice-cream freezer with an insulated can, after churning, remove dasher; replace lid. Cover the lid with ice and cover with a towel.
