    renajune's Note:

    This was a recipe my mother, Nellie, made often beginning over 50 years ago but I've never come across anyone else who makes it! The only difficult part is having juicy fresh peaches to put into it, so July & August are the perfect time to make it when peaches are abundant. This is best made ahead of time several hours but the really hard part is letting is set in the fridge that amount of time and not eating ALL of it immediately! You'll find out, it addicting.

    Serves: 4



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Wash and cut up the peaches into small pieces--feel free to peel the peaches first if they are quite fuzzy on the outside.
    2. 2
      Peel and cut the bananas in small slices.
    3. 3
      Combine the fruits with the sugar and stir well. If you choose to use an non-caloric sweetener, consider putting at least one tablespoon of regular sugar to aid in the release the juice from the peaches. Obviously the amounts of the ingredients are not critical, but the sugar is the key player in this recipe so don't forget it.
    4. 4
      Stir in the miniature marshmallows, cover and refrigerate up to 3 days. Serve in individual bowls or cups so this doesn't make the rest of the foods on a plate all wet. The combination of the juice of the peaches drawn out by the sugar and the dissolving of the marshmallows makes an acidic liquid that keeps the bananas from getting brown and creates a wonderful mellow flavored liqueur so the longer it sets in the fridge, the better it gets--and don't throw the juice away, it's the best part! If you leave it long enough, it will ferment. If your bananas end up on top of the fruit and look a little brown before serving, stir them down into the juice and they will look better almost immediately.
