In this dessert, golden peaches are stuffed with an almond macaroon filling and baked with Marsala wine.
• These tree fruits are good sources of beta-carotene, vitamin C, niacin and potassium. They also supply some fibre and, gram for gram, contain more potassium than a navel orange.
• Some frozen peaches will have as much as 20 per cent more vitamin C than fresh peaches. That's because ascorbic acid is added to maintain the fruit's colour.
• Cooking has very little effect on beta-carotene.
