Pat's notes for this recipe:
This is the most delicious peach custard ice cream I have tasted- My niece made this for us when we visited her in Canada, she was kind enough to give me the magazine with this recipe - Bon Appetit Magazine -2002.
This recipe has a thick puree of fresh peaches added to the rich custard ice cream base. This recipe can be made 3 days ahead.

Bring 1 cup of the cream, all the half and half and 1/2 cup of the sugar to a simmer in a medium saucepan.
Whisk yolks in medium bowl; gradually whisk in cream mixture. Return mixture to saucepan. Stir over medium heat until custard thickens and leaves a path on back of spoon when finger is drawn across, about 4 minutes(DO NOT BOIL). Strain into bowl.
Refrigerate custard until cold, about 3 hours.
Place peaches, corn syrup, 1/4 cup sugar in medium saucepan. Stir over medium heat until peaches are heated through, about 4 minutes.
Mash to coarse puree. Cool completely. Stir into custard along with vanilla and the 1/2 cup remaining cream.
