    Over a bowl, take a peach in your hand and cut off small pieces with a knife, without going right to the stone.

    We don't use immedieately around the stone as this flesh is less sweet.

    If peach salad is to be kept longer than one hour, add 1 pinch vitamin C to prevent browning.

    You can serve in individual bowls, with a few mint leaves for decoration.

Remarks:

The secret of this recipe is in the quality and flavouro f the peaches, take best flavoured you can find, different kinds if possible: yellow, white, vine, etc.

If you lke a stronger mint flavour, you can make an infusion. For this: put chopped mint leaves in a pan, with sugar syrup, over low heat and bring to the boil. When boiling, remove from heat, cover and leave to cool. Add to peaches through a strainer as in the classic recipe.
