peach melbaPeach Melba Day

Most of the country is hunkered down trying to make it through cold weather about now so the thought of eating ice cream may be repulsive to some. But January 13th is Peach Melba day and this dessert is just good enough to eat anytime! Read on for an easy recipe that will keep you occupied for about thirty minutes.


What You Need

4 peaches (Of course it’s the middle of winter so you may need to use canned peaches!)
2 cups of water
2 cups of sugar
1 quart of vanilla ice cream

If you are not a cook you can use a can of raspberry pie filling for the raspberry sauce, otherwise you will need these additional items:

1 bag of frozen raspberries in syrup (you can also use fresh berries)
1 teaspoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons sugar

Let’s Do it!

Peel and pit the peaches, then slice into quarters or 8ths.
Bring the water and sugar to a boil then add in the peach slices.
Simmer for about 5 minutes then remove from heat and allow to chill.

Put the raspberries in a blender and pulverize them.
Strain the seeds and pulp out by pushing the juice through a fine strainer.
Whisk in the cornstarch until smooth then do the same with the sugar.
Cook over medium heat until the concoction boils then boil for one minute longer. Make sure you stir it constantly so it does not burn on the bottom of the pan.
Remove the sauce from the heat and chill.

After the mixtures have chilled for about eight hours (for full body flavor) drop a few peach slices over some ice cream and then drizzle the sauce over the combination and enjoy!
