Is required
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 sprig (4 1/2 inches long) rosemary, more for garnish
  • 4 medium white or yellow peaches
  • 4 medium white or yellow nectarines

Directions

  • 1. Combine the honey, sugar, and 1/2 cup water in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the sugar dissolves.
  • 2. Add the rosemary and reduce the heat to low. Cook for 7 minutes to let the rosemary infuse. Strain through a fine sieve, let cool, and refrigerate to chill completely.
  • 3. Just before serving, halve and pit the peaches and nectarines. Cut the fruit into 1/4 inch slices and put them in a large serving bowl. Pour on just enough of the rosemary syrup to lightly coat the fruit, about 6 tablespoons. Garnish the peaches and nectarines with fresh sprigs of rosemary, if you like.

Recipe Testers Reviews

Rosemary pairs so nicely with so many things, so I was excited to try it with peaches and nectarines. Well, it works! The sweet honey syrup with a hint of rosemary is delightful. This opens up all sorts of other possibilities, including infusing the syrup with lavender, basil, or lemongrass. My husband and I are going to have it with blueberries later this evening, as blueberries love rosemary. I would think guests would really enjoy this for breakfast, perhaps with some Greek yogurt and toasted hazelnuts.
