Recipe: Peach Melba Parfait

Peach Melba Parfait


* 1 1/2 cup cups water (can also replace up to half of this amount with a white wine)

* 1 1/2 cups sugar

 * 1/2 vanilla pod, split lengthwise

* 1 Tablespoon lemon juice

* 4 peaches, cut in half


Raspberry sauce:

* 1 1/2 cups raspberries

* 2 Tablespoons powdered sugar

* 1 Tablespoon lemon juice

 * 1 pint vanilla ice
Heat the water (and wine, if using), sugar, lemon juice, and vanilla pod in a large saucepan over medium heat to dissolve the sugar. Bring the pan to the boil and let it cook for several minutes.   Reduce heat and bring the syrup to a fast simmer. Poach the peaches for several minutes until just softened. Remove the peaches to a plate and let cool.  When cool, remove the peels and pits and cut each peach half into 4 pieces.

Sliced Peaches

Combine the raspberries, powdered sugar, and lemon juice in a blender or a food processor and blend until smooth. If you’re using a standard blender or food processor, sieve to remove the seeds… if you’re using a high speed blender like a Vitamix, you can skip this step.
To assemble alternate layers of the poached peaches, the raspberry sauce and vanilla ice cream and garnish with a couple raspberries.

Dessert is served: Peach Melba Parfait

Serves four.

  1. This parfait looks absolutely delicious. And just because I’m allergic to peaches, doesn’t mean I won’t be substituting it for something else lol. And you know I LOVE vanilla ice cream.. I feel like such a kid right now lol
