Stage 4

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.

Stage 5 - 10 min.

Do this with all the peaches.

Add juice of 1 lemon and mix well.

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

Stage 6 - 2 min.
Peach and mint salad
Pour mint syrup over peaches through a fine strainer to remove mint leaves which you can discaed.

Stage 7 - 1 min.
Peach and mint salad
Add more sugar syrup until peaches pieces are well covered.

Cover with plastic film, and keep in the fride until serving.

Stage 8
Peach and mint salad
You can serve in individual bowls, with a few mint leaves for decoration.
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.
Home made.

  • For Sarah : this is a red kind of peaches call "vineyard peaches", they are pretty but not very tasty. If you can find small, very tasty and flavoured vineyard peaches from your grand-mother garden (or something), this will certainly be great.

  • It sound great, but what are those reds fruits in?
