Recipe: Classic Peach Melba

This recipe for classic Peach Melba hardly deserves a separate recipe…. as I pointed out before… it’s a dessert made up of peaches, vanilla ice cream and raspberry sauce.

You can easily use canned peaches and buy your vanilla ice cream… the raspberry syrup or sauce can be purchased also… but that can be harder to find… you can melt a few tablespoons of Raspberry Seedless jam or preserves and use that in a pinch.

If you are determined to make everything except the ice cream from scratch… there are a number of recipes out there you can do. Emeril has a good one on his website

Quick Tip

If you don't have canned or frozen peach halves... slices will work just as well.

Personally I go the shortcut route… the dessert can be as easy or as complicated as you want… either way it is delicious!

Classic Peach Melba Recipe:

Raspberry syrup or sauce
Whipped cream (optional)

All you need to do:
