I have had this recipe in my recipe box for 20 years and can, once again, buy peaches so readily at the fruit stands/orchards that are around us. ‘Tis the season…..
You will need:
- 4 large peaches, skins removed
- 1 cup basic sugar syrup
- 1 tsp. clear vanilla
- 1 quart best vanilla ice cream (actually, Chapman’s)
- 1 recipe Melba sauce
Cut peaches in half. Combine syrup and vanilla and boil for 5 minutes. Poach the peaches in this syrup for 10 minutes until tender. Remove from syrup, cool down and chill thoroughly.
In 8 of your prettiest dishes, place a generous scoop of ice cream. Turn the peach halves upside down and place in the center of the ice cream. Top with the Melba sauce.
Combine 2 cups water and 2 cups sugar in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and continue boiling for about 4 minutes. Cool down and keep covered in the refrigerator.
Doesn’t have to be difficult to be and look exceptional.
- 2 cups raspberries
- 1/2 cup icing sugar
- 1 tbsp. fresh lemon jujice
- 1/4 cup apple juice
- splash of Chambourd
Put all ingredients in a blender and puree. Strain to remove all the seeds. Chill until ready to serve.
