One quart heavy cream, 1/2 pint milk, 1 1/3 cups sugar, 1 tablespoon vanilla and pinch of salt. Heat iron spider hot and wipe clean. Melt 1/2 the dry sugar in the spider, stirring with knife until all is melted. Have milk hot in double boiler and pour melted sugar into it immediately. As the milk is not as hot as the sugar the latter hardens somewhat and should be allowed to remain in the boiler until melted again. Strain the caramel and milk through cheesecloth into the can of the freezer and set away to cool. When cold add cream, balance of sugar and flavoring and freeze.

One pint whipped cream, 2 cups yellow peach pulp, 4 cups water and 2 cups sugar, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, or more to taste. Boil water and sugar 20 minutes. Cool and add fruit pulp and lemon juice. Freeze, and when frozen remove the dasher and beat in the whipped cream, being careful not to allow the cream to hit the sides of the can as it will freeze in flakes.
