“This recipe comes from a junior league cookbook, Above and Beyond Parsley. It is simply delicious and easy. I always serve mine with vanilla bean ice cream. Tip for an easy way to peel the peaches - blanch them in boiling water for about 30 seconds, then immediately place them in icy cold water and slip the skins right off!”
