Peaches are in season right now and so delicious ! This is a very easy recipe that makes a fantastic fresh summer desert …..
For 4 to 6 white peaches :
Boil some water and pour over the peaches . Let stand a few minutes. Strain and peal . Cut the peaches in quaters.
In 80cl of water , disolve on medium heat about 200 grs of sugar ( more or less depending on how sweet the peaches are ) .Take to a boil for a few minutes and ad a bunch of fresh lemon verbena leaves ( I grow my own , but you can find some at Hillcrest Farmers market). Let stand covered to infuse the verbena . Remove the leaves and gently put the peaches quaters into that syrup . Simmer for 10-15 mns until peaches are poached. Ad some new fesh verbena leaves and cool down in the fridge . Serve very cold with some syrup and some leaves .
This recipe can be done also with yellow peaches . Instead of sugar , I use lavender honey in the same proportions and ad long zests of citrus fruits ( grapefruit, orange and lemon ) witch I serve with the fruits . The mix of lavender honey and zests is fantastic .
Voila !! Thanks Pierre for an other great recipe 🙂
