Cook's Notes

If the peaches are very sweet, use the lesser amount of sugar.

    I think you have a good idea here. I have tried ice cream recipes in which I substitute half and half for cream and I find that I prefer the texture and flavor of half and half. It's easier to taste the fresh ingredients, too. :)

    Loved the combined flavors of lavender, peach, and lemon here. I changed it up a bit in that I scalded the cream with two lavender sprigs, let come to room temp then combined it with the crushed peaches and sugar in the fridge. I also used orange liqueur instead of vodka and also added the zest of 1 lemon. Made a delicious, tart dessert. Next time I might use whole milk or half and half instead of cream because the cream is so rich (i.e. fatty) that it left a residue on my spoon!
