|Peaches from Jeanette|
Recipe for three desserts:
3 whole fresh peaches
vanilla ice cream
raspberries (or in my case I had on hand some raspberry seedless jam)
sliced almonds (optional)
1. Poach peaches in simmering (not boiling) water to soften and make removal of the skin easy.

3. Prepare raspberry sauce. I heated the raspberry seedless jam just enough to liquefy. If you are using fresh raspberries, cook about 2 cups of raspberries in a cup of sugar. Strain the cooked raspberries to remove the seeds and use the raspberry syrup to drizzle over the ice cream and peaches.
|I used raspberry jam instead of raspberries because this is what I had on hand.|

4. Put a scoop of vanilla ice cream in a dessert dish. Add two peach halves and drizzle with raspberry syrup. And there you have it---Peach Melba Dessert.
