Peach Melba Sundae
Dip 3 large scoops of vanilla ice cream into a tall sundae goblet and cover with Melba sauce. Add fresh sliced peaches, garnish with whipped cream, and place a maraschino cherry at the top.
Melba Sauce: You’ll need 1 cup of fresh raspberries and ¼ cup of sugar. Force the raspberries through a sieve fine enough to hold back the seeds. Place into a saucepan, add sugar and cook over moderate heat for 10 minutes, or long enough to make a heavy syrup. Serve cold.
