This simple parfait from VegNews contributor Donna Klein is just a little bit fancier than a fruit salad, and highlights the great flavors of late summer fruit. From jams to cobblers to straight-up snacking, peaches are everywhere in the late summer. Here's a tasty delight to put them to good use.
- 2 cups (1 pint) fresh raspberries, rinsed and drained
- 1/3 cup sugar
In a blender, purée all ingredients until very smooth. If desired, pass mixture through a fine-meshed sieve to remove the seeds. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
- 4 small ripe peaches, unpeeled, and thinly sliced
- 3/4 cup Raspberry Coulis
- 2 cups fresh blackberries
- 1/4 cup crème de cassis, crème de peches, or other fruit liqueur
In four glass parfait dishes or large wine goblets, alternate three layers of peaches, Raspberry Coulis, blackberries and liqueur. Serve at room temperature, or chill for one hour.
