6 halves peaches -- large fresh or -- canned 1 cup peach syrup 1-1/2 pints vanilla ice cream 1/2 cup chopped nuts
If fresh peaches are used, prepare a thick syrup by cooking 1 cup sugar, three/fourths cup water, 2 peaches pared and sliced, a few grains of salt, and enough red coloring matter to give a pinkish tinge. Strain and cool this syrup. If the peaches are canned, drain the syrup from them, cook it down, and color it pink. Put a spoonful of ice cream in the hollow of each peach, pour on some of the pink syrup, sprinkle with chopped nuts, and serve at once.
