Vanilla poached peaches

all details

Until this year, our homecook hero, Neill Johanson's cooking repertoire was confined to the weekend barbecue. "I was a pretty ordinary cook. I could do a mean T-bone, but that was about it," the architect and father of three says.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 split vanilla beans
  • 6 large peaches, halved
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Fresh mint leaves

Method

Boil water in a saucepan and reduce to a simmer. Add sugar and vanilla beans and simmer until sugar dissolves.

Simmer peaches in water for 2-3 minutes each side. Remove peaches, allow to cool and peel off the skin.

Reduce remaining syrup by simmering for a few minutes. Remove from the heat and, when cooled, add lemon juice and mint.

To serve

Serve peaches and syrup with vanilla ice-cream.
