Directions for: Vanilla Ice Cream with Peach Syrup


2 peaches, pitted and chopped

2 cups sugar

Vanilla ice cream, for serving

12 whole basil leaves, cut into a chiffonade


1. Place the chopped peaches in a bowl or mason jar and set aside.

2. In a saucepan, combine the sugar and 2 cups of water. Stir to combine. Turn the heat to medium high and boil until the syrup becomes thicker but is not yet starting to turn color, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and pour the syrup over the chopped peaches. Allow to sit at room temperature for 1 hour (or you can chill in the fridge).

3. To serve, spoon the peach syrup over the vanilla ice cream and sprinkle with the basil.
