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.
