  • 12 whole peaches or nectarines
  • 2 cups verjuice
  • 60 g sugar
  • 1 vanilla pod, split and scraped

Bring a large pan of water to the boil. Remove from the heat. Add the fruit, a few at a time, and leave for 1 minute. Remove the skins and set aside.

Place the verjuice, sugar, vanilla seeds and vanilla pod into a pot. Simmer until the sugar has dissolved and the liquid has reduced by half. Add the fruit.

Pour the syrup over the blanched fruit and remove the pod just before serving.
