My perfect summertime dessert is vanilla ice cream topped with PEACH FROST. When a peach is ripe it will have a sweet smell, be a little soft yet firm to the touch.
VANILLA AND PEACH FROST TOPPING
3 ripe freestone peaches, peeled, pitted and cut into quarters, 1/2 cup light corn syrup, 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/8 cup ginger ale, 1 vanilla bean, 2 scoops French vanilla ice cream.
Get out the blender, add the peaches, corn syrup, and ginger, blend until silky smooth. Slowly add the ginger ale, pulse a couple of times. Add the ice cream to a bowl, pour the peach mixture over the ice cream. Scrape the vanilla from the bean on top of the peach mixture. TIME FOR DESSERT!
