Yield: 4 peach halves

2 peaches
188 ml water
175 g sugar
juice of 1/8 lemon
1/4 vanilla pod

  • Slice the peaches in half. If the stones come out easily, remove them, if not, you can remove them later after poaching. Set aside.
  • Put water, sugar and lemon juice in a saucepan.
  • Split the vanilla pod lengthwise then scrape of the seeds; add the seeds and pod into the saucepan.
  • Heat the saucepan gently until the sugar dissolves; let it boil for 3 minutes then turn the heat down to a simmer.
  • Poach the peach halves in the sugar syrup for about 3-4 minutes each side, depending on the ripeness of the fruit. It's ready when it's soft when pierced with the tip of a knife.
  • Remove peaches from poaching syrup.
  • Let it cool for a bit. Remove the stones that are still on the peaches, and peel of the skin of the peaches. Voila!
  • You can use the peaches immediately, if not keep in the fridge with the poaching syrup. You can use the leftover syrup for your next poaching or use it as a syrup to brush on cakes.
