Rinse with cold water to stop the cooking and assist in easing the peeling.

3.  Using a pairing knife and starting at the slit on the top of each peach, remove the skin from the peach. Next cut the peach in half and remove the pit. Using a brush apply the rest of the lemon juice to peaches.

4.  Making the peach delight desert- Once the raspberry sauce has chilled it’s time to serve the dessert. Place a single large scoop of ice cream on your serving dish and top with one peach half. Pour the raspberry sauce over the top. Repeat the process for the remaining peach halves and serve immediately.
