Recipe

Minted Poached Peaches

minted peachesWhat You’ll Need:

6 firm, ripe peaches
2 cups sugar
1 vanilla bean, split (or 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract)
2 strips lemon zest
1 large mint sprig, plus more for serving
4 cups water

What To Do:

— Using a paring knife, lightly score an X into bottom of peaches (this will help with peeling later). In a large saucepan, combine sugar, vanilla, lemon zest, mint, and water. Cook over medium, stirring occasionally, until sugar has dissolved.

— Add peaches and enough water to cover. Bring to a bare simmer, and cook, turning occasionally, until peaches are easily pierced with a skewer, 6 to 10 minutes, depending on ripeness of peaches.

— Remove peaches with a slotted spoon; let cool slightly. Using a paring knife, peel peaches; return to syrup. Serve with mint sprigs.
