  3. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, salt and remaining sugar. Place the bowl over a medium pot of simmering water and heat, whisking constantly, until the mixutre rea ches 170 F degrees on a thermometer, about 5 – 6 minutes.

  5. Gently fold the whipped cream into the egg mixture until well combined. Do not over fold.
  6. Pour 1/3 of the semifreddo mixture into the prepared breadloaf pan. Drizzle witha thirde of the peach jam and use a skewer to swirl it through the semifreddo. Scatter a thrid of the diced peaches on top. Repeat 2 more times until you’ve used up all the ingredients.
  7. Cover the semifreddo with the excess plastic wrap overhanging on all sides of the pan. Freeze for a minimum of 8 hours, but best to freeze overnight.

  9. In a medium bowl, toss the peaches with a little bit of “Fruit Fresh” to help reduce browning of the fruit.
