Grilled peaches with sherry and apricot-delight ice-cream


You'll need

50 gm flaked almonds 2 yellow peaches, halved 40 gm butter, melted 60 ml sweet sherry   Apricot delight ice-cream 200 gm apricot delight (see note) 450 gm vanilla bean ice-cream, just softened

Method

  • 01
  • 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.
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 180C. Scatter almonds on an oven tray and bake until golden (3-5 minutes). Set aside to cool.
  • 03
  • 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.

Note Apricot delight is a confection available from select health-food shops, delicatessens and supermarkets.
