2 cups half and half
1 cup whole milk
3/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch dissolved in a little milk
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large peaches or 1 1/2 cups pureed
A pinch of salt
A little red color (optional)

This ice cream is made in an ice cream maker.

Preparation: According to instructions the container that makes the ice cream is frozen in a freezer for 24 hours or the previous day.

Preparing the cream:  To a pan on medium heat add the milk and sugar and cook until the sugar is dissolved.  When the sugar is dissolved add the milk and cornstarch and cook for 5 to 6 minutes until it has come to a almost boil but not a rolling boil.  Add vanilla extract, mix and turn the heat of.  Transfer to a container and refrigerate it for 8 to 12 hours until it is well cooled.

Prepare the peaches:  Remove and discard the skin and chop the peaches, put it in a blender jar, add a pinch of salt and puree it.  Add a little red color if desired.  Refrigerate it for at least 2 hours or until it is cool.

Assemble the ice cream maker as per ice cream maker instructions.
Add the chilled cream and the pureed peaches and let the machine run for 10 to 20 minutes or until the mixture has become somewhat solid.  The ice cream maker does not make the ice cream solid the contents will need to be transferred to a freezer bowl and frozen until it has become solid or ice cream consistency.  After it has become solid it is ready to serve.
