Honey-Poached Peaches and Apricots

Serve with olive oil wafers.

4 apricots
2 peaches
2 T white granulated sugar
2 T honey
1 drop orange flower water
2 T chopped pistachios

Optional: creme fraiche

Preparing the fruit:
Bring a large pot of water to the boil. With the point of a knife, make a cross in the bottom of the fruits. Plunge them into the boiling water for 1 minute. Remove and plunge into a bowl of ice cold water. Peel, pit, and slice onto a platter.

Put the sugar and honey in a saucepan with 1/2 cup water. Boil 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and add a few drops of orange flower water. Pour over the fruit, then scatter over the nuts. Serve with creme fraiche on the side.

Serves 4
