Summer has just begun, and here in Italy that means the brightest, warmest days of the year are here with more to come! A small dish or cone of gelato is the perfect way to refresh.
Ginger Peach Delight
*4 ripe peaches
*1 small piece of fresh ginger
*2 tsps butter
*2 tsps sugar
*1 tsp cinnamon
Wash the peaches and cut into slices. Finely chop the ginger. Place butter, chopped ginger and peach slices in a saute pan over low heat. Sprinkle sugar on top of fruit and saute for 4-5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. Let gelato sit at room temperature or soften for approx 10 minutes. Add in cinnamon and blend well. Divide peach mixture into 4 glasses, placing some first on bottom of glasses, then place in gelato, then top with remaining peaches. Serve.
