Irene’s Peach Surprise

I purchased several pounds of peaches at Newflower Farmers’ Market last week when they were $0.47/lb, so I needed to use them up. I made peach sauce with most of them, but also found Irene’s Peach Surprise recipe in the July 2010 issue of Real Simple Magazine when I was trying to clear magazine clutter from my house.

I made the recipe comply with the rules of the Specific Carbohydrate Diet by using homemade peach sorbet instead of vanilla ice cream, and the SCD meringues posted at

Unfortunately 2-3 minutes cooking time was not long enough to cook the meringues. Maybe it’s because of my modified meringue recipe, but I think 5-6 minutes or possibly longer is needed to thoroughly cook the meringues.

The homemade peach sorbet (which was just peach puree with a few pureed slices of banana that I ran through my Cuisinart ice cream/sorbet/frozen yogurt maker) went really well with the peaches. When I get around to making cows’ milk SCD yogurt (which now looks like Monday or Tuesday), I plan to make vanilla ice cream and try the recipe again.

For anyone following the Specific Carbohydrate Diet….
I should have cooked the peaches and removed the skins. I removed the skins before my daughter ate them, but she still consumed raw peaches, which are too advanced in the early stages of the diet.
