Recipe: Peach Gelato

White and Yellow Peaches, image by LeAnn, l&l at home, linenandlavender.net

This is super easy to make and sooo fresh and delicious.  We just shared the recipe in our latest magazine issue (page 13): 

It's just three ingredients -peaches, sugar and mascarpone- and a few easy steps.  


 Here's pics of Alex showing you how we did it:

We used both white and yellow peaches and peeled most but tried leaving the skin on a few -since most of the vitamins are found there- it not only looked pretty with the flecks throughout, it tasted great too. It is creamy like a fine gelato with the peach bits providing just the right texture.

As indicated in the recipe, once you freeze it for a length of time it may become quite hard but you can just pulse it a couple of times in your food processor to return it to its original creamy consistency.

The recipe is by the Sicilian chef, Ciccio Sultano from the book "How to Pick a Peach" by Russ Parsons.  The book (not just about peaches) contains 100 recipes and tips on selecting, storing and cooking fruits and vegetables.  You can read the full article in our magazine:   "PEACHES - A Summertime Favorite" and order the book by clicking on the links found there or go straight to shop here:


We hope you try it and love it too.  (We're so happy.)
