    4       md           Peaches -- peeled & pits
                         -removed
    2       tb           Raspberry vinegar -- up to 3 tb
    2       tb           Sugar, powdered -- or to taste
    2       c            Raspberries, fresh
      1/2   c            Creme fraiche -- up to 3/4
 
   “To peel peaches, bring a medium saucepan of water to
   a boil. Drop 1 peach at a time gently into the boiling
   water, leave it for 5 seconds, and retrieve it by
   piercing the flesh with a fork. With a paring knife,
   slit the skin, which will then slip off easily.” “This
   puree can be made several hours ahead but should be
   stirred before spooning onto the plates. The raspberry
   vinegar holds the color of the peaches, add a subtle
   tang, and heightens the flavor of the raspberries.
   Pears may be substituted for the peaches and can
   simply be peeled without first being dipped into
   boiling water.” Puree the peaches in a food processor
   or a food mill fitted with the finest disk. (There
   should be about 1 cup puree.) Add the raspberry
   vinegar and enough of the powdered sugar to balance
   the taste. Refrigerate until serving time.
   Divide the puree among 4 dessert plates, spooning it
   into a semicircle. Nestle a quarter of the raspberries
   beside each serving of puree and pass the creme
   fraiche separately.
