In a small bowl, combine cane sugar, dextrose, salt, locust bean gum, guar gum, carrageenan. Mix ingredients to combine and set aside.
In a blender, combine cream, milk, egg yolks, and peanut butter. Mix on medium speed then lower the blender to the lowest speed and keep it running to create a vortex.
Slowly pour in the dry ingredients to combine. Turn the blender to high for 10 seconds, then shut it off.
Add blended mixture to saucepan over medium-low heat and gently bring up to 170°F / 77°C and hold it there to denature the whey protein, hydrate the gums, and reduce the mixture.
Once the mixture coats the back of a spoon, remove from heat and transfer to a sealable heat-resistant container.
Place in a refrigerator to allow the flavors to develop fully and cool down to 40°F / 10°C - approximately 4 hours.
When the mix is down to temp, transfer to a pre-chilled ice cream maker and run the ice cream maker until the ice cream is fully thickened.
Transfer ice cream into a sealable container and freeze for at least 4 hours (ideally overnight).
Allow ice cream to thaw at room temperature for about 10 minutes before scooping.
