Peaches and ice cream

Peaches and ice cream

When did flat peaches become a thing? 
They must have been around for centuries in Mediterranean markets, but their appearance in British supermarkets seems to be a recent phenomenon. Friends tell me that their children call them doughnut peaches, or even UFO peaches (an inspired name). 

I have been hen-sitting. We haven't had hens for a couple of years now, although we still have the eglu, just in case we are ever tempted to do it again. I had forgotten how many eggs they used to lay. When there were four of us at home and I was baking regularly, we always managed to use them all up.
My neighbour has four hens and they are certainly prolific - after just a few days the fridge is well stocked with nearly twenty eggs! 

As a result, I have dug the ice cream maker out of the back of one of the kitchen cupboards. It has to win the award for least used kitchen gadget of all time. I think that I could make ice cream with the yolks and meringues with the whites, so I'm on the hunt for some recipes. 
I'll let you know how it turns out.
