Zabaglione with Fresh Peaches and Raspberries
This recipe for zabaglione, a traditional custard dessert, comes from "Lucinda's Rustic Italian Kitchen," by Lucinda Scala Quinn.
- 4 peaches
- 2 large egg yolks
- 3 tablespoons Marsala wine
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 pint raspberries
Bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Prepare an ice-water bath. Place peaches in boiling water and cook 10 seconds. Drain, and immediately transfer peaches to ice-water bath. Remove peels using your fingers or a paring knife. Slice peaches in half and remove pit; set aside.
In a heatproof bowl set over (but not touching) simmering water, add egg yolks, Marsala, and sugar. Beat until mixture is creamy and thick, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat.
Divide peach halves evenly between 4 plates. Fill peach halves with berries and spoon over zabaglione. Serve immediately.
