The peaches

Peel 6 peaches (the best way is to use the sae method as for tomatoes).

Drizzle each peach with a little lime (or lemon) juice after peeling to stop it turning brown.

Stage 6 - 5 min.

Slice the peaches fairly thickly (a mandolin is ideal for this; a good knife also works, though it takes a bit longer).

Stage 7 - 1 min.

Pour the cold mojito syrup over the peaches and mix well.

The peaches can be kept for a short while like this, but must be covered with plastic film in contact with the surface.

Stage 8

Serve cool, but not too cold, in individual dishes, for example, garnished with a sprig of mint.
Remarks
If you are in a hurry, use sugar syrup instead of the mix of different sugars and water in stage 1. This will also be a bit sweeter.

The quantities of rum and lime juice are for guidance, so do feel free to adapt these to suit your taste.

If you don't have white peaches, the yellow sort or nectarines will work fine, but it is important to use really ripe, flavoursome fruit.
Keeping
Should be eaten the same day.
