Roast peaches

Vanilla ice cream

  • 250ml of double cream
  • 250ml of milk
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 3 vanilla pods, split in half with the seeds scraped out
  • 125g of caster sugar

To plate

  • 30g of whole almonds, peeled and toasted with a little icing sugar to caramelise
1
In a saucepan, whisk together the the milk, cream and split vanilla pods and bring to the boil. Once the mixture is boiling, remove from the heat
  • 250ml of double cream
  • 250ml of milk
  • 3 vanilla pods
2
In a separate bowl, whisk the egg yolks and sugar together until pale. Pour on the milk and cream, whisking continuously until the mixture is fully combined
3
Return the mixture to a clean pan and gently heat whilst continuing to stir. Cook until the mix coats the back of a spoon before straining into a bowl set over ice
4
Cool the mix, then churn in an ice cream maker until an ice cream consistency is reached
5
For the peaches, preheat the oven to 220ºC/gas mark 7. Slice the peaches in half and remove the stones. Place cut-side up in a baking dish, and sprinkle each peach half with the brown sugar, honey and lemon thyme leaves
6
Roast in the oven for 20 minutes or until the peaches have softened and caramelised nicely – they should still hold their shape
7
To serve, arrange 3 peach halves on each plate with a quenelle of vanilla ice cream, toasted almonds and a little of the roasting juices
