Peach Melba

A few drops of fresh squeezed Lemon Juice
added to the Sugar syrup
in which the ripe but firm Peach is being poached
taking a tangy sweetness
complementing the mild tart-sweet Raspberry sauce,
simmered, puréed, sieved and
drizzled over the delightfully pure Vanilla Ice Cream
adding to the overall creamy deliciousness.
Served chilled with a sprig of Mint.
