If you don't like poached peaches, use nectarines, apples, small pears or apricots instead.

Ingredients

(Serves 4)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 vanilla bean, split and scraped
  • 4 large peaches, pitted and quartered
  • Mint leaves or cinnamon, for garnish

Directions

Place the water, sugar, vanilla bean and scrapings into a saucepan. Over low heat stir the mixture until the sugar dissolves. Continue to simmer until the mixture thickens, about 10 minutes.

Add the cut fruit. Poach over low heat for about 5 minutes. Transfer the peaches and sauce to small, decorative bowls. Garnish with mint leaves or a dusting of cinnamon. Serve immediately.
