French Vanilla Ice Cream

  1. Combine the water, sugar, ¼ cup of lemon juice, and vanilla been seeds and pod in a saucepan.  Bring to a boil over high heat.  Reduce the mixture by about half, about 15 minutes.  Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. Place the peaches face up in a baking dish.  Pour ½ cup of the reserved liquid over the peaches and refrigerate until well chilled.
  3. Combine the raspberries, ½ cup of the syrup, confectioners’ sugar, and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice in a food processor and process until well pureed.  Strain the raspberry mixture through a fine mesh sieve.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.
