Spumoni adds an Italian flair to a classic dessert in this recipe by Chef Angelo Micheli, chef/owner of Pasquini's Fine Italian Food in Live Oak.


Wash raspberries and add to a bowl along with sugar.  Let sit for at least 15 minutes.

Add preserves, water and lemon juice to a saucepan. Heat mixture on medium-low heat until melted. Add raspberries and cook 10 minutes. Let cool.

Place sliced peaches in a large wine glass, martini glass or serving bowl of your choice. Scoop spumoni or vanilla ice cream into glass. Add additional sliced peaches and top with raspberry sauce and whipped cream.
