Get Passionate About Peaches (NAPSA) Once a fruit
of the gods and still associated with beauty and goodness, peaches have been enticing people
worldwide for more than 3,000 years.
America's love of peaches began in the 1600s. Since then, we have been passionate about
peaches in all types of treats: pies, puddings, smoothies, baked goods and more. In fact, each
American consumes about five pounds of peaches every year.
In celebration of summer, rekindle your affection for this flavorful fruit with this delicious recipe topped with Reddi-wip real whipped cream.
- 6 cups water
- 2 cups sugar
- 6 ripe peaches, peeled, halved and pitted
- 4 tsp. vanilla
- 1 cup marion berries or blackberries
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 Tbsp. raspberry brandy (optional)
- Reddi-wip real whipped cream
In a Dutch oven, combine water and 2 cups sugar; heat to boiling. Boil gently, uncovered, for 3
minutes. Add peach halves. Return to boiling; reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes
or until peaches are tender. Stir in vanilla. Carefully transfer peaches and cooking liquid to a very
large bowl; cover and chill.
Meanwhile, press berries through a sieve; discard seeds. In a small bowl, stir together berry
puree, 1/4 cup sugar and brandy, if desired. Cover and chill. To serve, use a slotted spoon to
transfer 2 peach halves to each dessert dish. Spoon berry mixture over peaches. Pipe Reddi-wip
around edges of dishes so peaches show through in center.
