PEACH BASIL PROSCIUTTO

by Daryl Wood Gerber (Cookbook NOOK Mystery series)

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 peaches sliced in eighths
  • 1 pound prosciutto, cut into thin one-inch slices
  • 12-16 large leaves of basil, rinsed, stem removed

DIRECTIONS

Slice the peaches
Slice the prosciutto
Prepare the basil

Lay one slice of peach in each basil leaf. Using a piece of prosciutto, wrap at the center around the peach/basil combo, twisting or pressing at the end so the prosciutto holds together.

NOTES

gerber nookcookbookseriesIn the Perfect Peach recipe, the skin of the peach is cut off. I prefer the skin on for texture. You can do either. Also, my husband liked the peach with the prosciutto by itself, no basil. I happen to adore basil and loved the combination. Eat to your heart’s content!
