    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 35 minutes 35 minutes

    Serves: 4


    4 ripe peaches (or nectarines)
    Finely grated zest and juice of 1 large orange
    25g unsalted butter
    2 tsp caster sugar
    50g pistachio kernels
    1 Waitrose British Blacktail Large Free Range Egg, white only
    50g icing sugar
    Few drops orange flower water, optional


    1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4. Halve and stone the peaches or nectarines, then place in a shallow ovenproof dish, cut side up in one layer. Set aside the orange zest, then pour the juice over the fruit. Add a knob of butter to each, then sprinkle with the caster sugar. Bake uncovered for 10 minutes.

    2. Meanwhile, blitz the pistachios until fairly fine but with a little texture in a mini processor.

    3. Put the egg white and icing sugar in a heatproof bowl and set over a pan of simmering water. Whisk with a hand-held electric whisk for 3-4 minutes until the meringue forms soft peaks. Remove from the heat and whisk for a further 1 minute.

    4. Fold in the orange zest, pistachios and orange flower water if using. Spoon the meringue onto each peach and return to the oven for a further 8-10 minutes until the meringue is golden. Serve warm or at room temperature on the same day.
