Slow Cooker Boozy Peaches with Cafe Bianco Ricotta Ice Cream
We are still enjoying peach season here in Ontario and with the last bit of summer, we are eating them as much as we can before they are gone. This Boozy Peach recipe was so delicious and simple to prepare. With Paderno's new small appliances, their 6-Quart Slow Cooker has been put to great use and slow-cooked the peaches to perfection, without them being mushy. With its programmable temperature and timer, it is simple to use for precise cooking and performance. And we can’t let summer go by without enjoying some homemade non-churn ice cream. Paderno 10-Speed Hand Mixer was also ideal to whip up a very creamy Cafe Bianco & Ricotta Ice Cream that was the perfect pairing for our Sweet Boozy Peaches. Tip: For a smoother textured ice cream, purchase extra smooth fresh ricotta. (Sponsored)
I loved using these small appliances this summer! They’re designed with the precision control I needed to deliver some of my best cooking moments and they’ve become a staple in my kitchen. Looking forward to enjoying them many years to come!
