Caramelized Peaches with Vanilla Custard Recipe at
Combine the sugar and water in a saucepan and stir over low heat to dissolve the sugar. Bring mixture to a boil. Add the peaches and poach for 10-15 minutes, until a skewer inserted in the thickest part of the peach meets no resistance. Remove the peaches, peel off the skins and set aside. Bring the poaching syrup to a boil and boil until reduced by half, about 10 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly.

Combine the custard with the cream, vanilla and 2 tablespoons of the syrup. Place the custard mixture in a bowl and place the peaches in the mixture. Sprinkle the peaches with a little extra sugar. Broil (grill) the peaches, about 2 inches away from the heat, until the sugar caramelizes, about 3 minutes.
