I'm fairly experienced at making ice cream so when I read over the recipe it seemed like there was an awful lot of sugar for the amount of cream and half-and-half. I gave it the benefit of the doubt, however, assuming the peaches must require that extra sugar. But I still reduced it somewhat anyway. Rather than peaches I used mango, kiwi (fruits I had on hand) and a smidge of coconut extract and was really looking forward to this! I mixed it up, added the cream and half-and-half, gave it a taste and was SO disappointed to find it still too sweet for my taste. I had no choice but to add more cream, which I knew wasn't going to hurt the ice cream, but would indeed affect (weaken) the flavor. Thank goodness I tasted this before I churned it so that I could try to fix it! While this ended up being rich, creamy and delicious since I had to dilute the mix with extra cream, it was hardly "peachy."
