  • For apricot delight ice-cream, combine apricot delight and 80ml water in a small saucepan. Stir over medium heat until a sauce consistency (3-5 minutes). Transfer to a bowl placed over ice and stir until cool, then add ice-cream and fold through to form a ripple effect. Freeze until required.

  • Meanwhile, preheat a grill over high heat until smoking. Brush cut-side of peaches with melted butter and grill, turning once, until golden (1-2 minutes each side). Transfer to a bowl, add sherry and stand for flavours to meld (5-10 minutes). Serve warm with apricot delight ice-cream and toasted almonds.
