There is nothing like peaches in the summer time and this is a very quick and easy recipe which I put together for dinner last night! It is a wonderful combination of flavors and the ripe juicy peaches melt in your mouth!

 

Henry especially for you!

Easy: Quick Summer Recipes!

 

 

 

2-4 Persons

 

 

 

Ingredients

2-4 Ripe Large Juicy Peaches

2-4 teaspoons of Greek Thyme Honey

1 Juice and fine zest of Lime

3-4 leaves of fresh lemon Verbena finely sliced

 

Method

1. Wash and peel peaches and slice. (I cut into the central stone and slice round, 1 cm thick pieces.)

2. Place in serving dish and drizzle with honey, depending on how sweet you like your peaches. I add two teaspoons.

3. Just before serving (not before, or the lime juice becomes bitter and the zest browns,)  grate lime zest on fine grater and pour over lime juice.

4.  Just before serving, slice a few leaves of lemon verbena fresh from the garden and decorate with a small sprig and your delicious dessert is ready.

 

N.B. This makes a wonderful combination of flavors and if you don’t have Greek thyme honey, other honeys can be used as a second best!

Cook’s tip!  If you make this an hour ahead of time, dissolve a little honey and lime juice in a small saucepan and drizzle over, so that peaches do not brown. It is best however, made just before eating!

Wash, peel and slice peaches into serving bowl. Reserve for up to an hour in refrigerator, not more or peaches will

brown. This is best made just before you eat it.

Drizzle with Greek Thyme Honey according to how sweet you like your peaches. I add two teaspoons. ( Here I am

adding the honey after adding lime and zest, because were eating it straight away.)

A few minutes before serving, finely grate over your peaches, your lime zest.

Pour over lime juice just before serving, not earlier or it goes bitter, like left over orange juice!

      So glad you enjoyed it! I think peaches are so perfect in them selves there is little one can do to improve them, apart from something complimentary, like this, or your Peach Fool! Certainly cooking them produces a completely different result!
