This is the best ice cream, of any flavor, I've ever had in my (over half-century) life! Other than scaling the recipe down to fit my ice cream machine, I did not change anything. This recipe has got it just right. Because the thin custard uses a little flour, it is not too eggy. The peach flavor is just wonderful. I made it up in the evening, chilled it well in the refrigerator, and froze it the next day. If you have good peaches, try this. You'll thank me. But first, I have to thank Nurse Di.

Why would you put wheat flour in ice cream? People with celiac disease would eat it and get sick. I would suggest when you do make it, you tell any guests what it contains. I would never think ice cream would be on my endangered list.
