    WiGal's Note:

    From TOH a gal from Baldwin, Wisconsin originally submitted. I have increased the original peach/water amount as hubby and I prefer a stronger peach taste. The color of this is more on the white side. I made smaller batch than this for us. Also think you could use canned peaches but then you might need to reduce sugar. Once had peach gelato with champagne instead of schnapps and it was good, might be good here. Cooking time is ice cream maker time, but does not include the refrigerator freezer time. I made custard the day before (through step 13) and did the ice cream maker part the afternoon I served.

      This was delicious. My color was very white because I used white peaches (my favorite) and I didn't find that to be a draw back in any way. The taste and smooth texture were pure summer pleasure. Made for Culinary Quest 2014. I'll make this again!
