· cream


1. Soak peaches for 5 minutes in water, skin.
2. Dissolve sugar in 2 cups water, boil.

5. Cool, pour over peaches, chill.
6. Serve with whipped cream.

Makes 1 dessert per person.

I can't offer the recipe, but the picture says a lot. The sauce was made from wild black currants on a light cake, both cooked over the campfire. My owner is the cook. biggrin.gif
