Roasted Peach and Graham Cracker Crunch Ice Cream

Oh my peaches, what a scorcher we're having here in Toronto. But guess what? No complaints because I complain enough during the icy cold winters we have. I am embracing the hot weather with open arms (because it keeps me cool) and eating lots and lots of ice cream.
It's currently peach season (yay) and I don't even know if I had to roast these, but I was inspired after seeing How Sweet It Is's post here. The peaches were sweet enough on their own, so I felt that roasting them might have made them a tad sour. But I gave it a try anyways. Mixing in 4 tablespoons of brown sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of salt before laying them out on a baking tray and roasting for half an hour.

But you know what I did love from that recipe? The graham cracker crumble! I need to make this for every ice cream topping! Simply mix 1 cup of graham cracker crumbs with 6 tablespoons of unsalted butter. It'll become nice and chunky, giving you a good crunchy texture in the ice cream.

I didn't follow the recipe fully as I switched to use Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream's base. So there was churning and freezing involved, which means I did not get to taste the fruit of my labours until the next day.

I sprinkled the graham cracker crumble, tossed in some peaches, then poured the ice cream base over. Repeated again with another layer of graham cracker crumble, peaches, and ice cream. Ending with the crumble and peaches on top.
Noticed my new ice cream container? Yes, I thought purchasing one would be a good investment for all the ice cream I'm going to make in the future. I found it at Crate & Barrel, Williams-Sonoma also carried one with a white rim instead of red. Howard firmly made me get the red one from Crate & Barrel because it was cheaper. Hmph! Aesthetically I preferred the all-white Tovolo storage tub, but financially, it just didn't make sense. The packaging does say that it's dishwasher safe, but I found that there was a bit of warping and well, you see the freezer burn on my peaches. Going to hand wash this from now on. The tub also doesn't hold a lot, if I hadn't accidentally spilled some of my ice cream mixture when I was pouring it into the ice cream machine, this would have overflowed in the tub because of the extra goodies I added in.
I wish I could say that the combination was perfect, but the texture of the ice cream came out icy. Noooooo! I wonder if it was all the delicious peach juices that came out after I roasted it? The ice cream is particularly more icy there, but it's fine around the graham cracker crumble. I'm starting to understand why the cookbook mixes jam into the recipe instead of actual fruit. Ah, we live and learn, but I'm still eating it and shivering along the way as it's keeping my body temperature down this summer.
