Jellied Peach Jewels

10 minutes


By Miyoko Schinner
This is a delicious summer dessert, so light, refreshing and easy to make. Peeling a peach is simple if you plunge it into boiling water for 20 seconds-the skin slips right off.


  • 3 tbsp agar flakes or 3/4 tsp agar powder
  • 1 pint apple juice
  • 1 large peach, peeled and chopped into 1/2 inch chunks
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 tbsp agave nectar


Place the agar and the apple juice in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook over medium heat for 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the peach to the apple juice and continue to cook for another 30 seconds. Add the lemon juice and Agave and mix well. Pour into individual parfait glasses and chill until set.
