One of the oldest dessert recipes that we have written record of is for a peach dish from ancient Roman times. You can read more about it at the link below. As strange as it sounds, the dish is flavored with cumin, which gives a lingering warmth that makes a nice contrast to the sweetness of the peaches.

I was so inspired by this ancient recipe and knew the resulting dessert would be perfect for our ongoing series of recipes for Italian cuisine that are compatible with Type 2 Diabetes.

The small amount of cumin is complemented with the sweet spice of cloves and balanced with vanilla. The free-form method crust makes a beautiful peach pie that is rustic but delicious!
