A perfectly ripe peach is a beautiful thing, but when poached and set atop a fluffy cloud of pavlova? They're simply stunning! The peach halves are cooked in water, lemon, sugar, and vanilla. They sit atop a bed of whipped cream over the meringue. Using brown sugar gives a a subtle caramel flavor to this pavlova.
Freestone peaches work best for slicing nice, clean halves. Use any extra poaching syrup to sweeten seltzer, iced tea, or cocktails.

This was delicious! Because of the temp. meringue needs to be checked on before 1 hr. 15 mins. Use a lower temp. or common sense and past baking knowledge and this is a beautiful recipe. I removed the peach skins before I started the recipe. The peaches and syrup were wonderful. Just right. Not too sweet. Thank you Martha for another wonderful recipe idea!
