Peaches & Plums & Pears….oh my!









My good friend UrbanFarmer gave me a delicious jar of her poached pears recently, which inspired me to grab all those end of summer stone fruit and poach them so I can eat yummy stone fruit all through winter on my porridge, muesli or in a wicked crumble. YUM!

Nothing to it really:

(1) choose your fruit (plum, apricot, peach, nectarine) add an apple or new season pear to round out slightly bitter flavours

(2) slice up fruit – my preference is for large pieces of fruit but its really up to you

(3) place in a saucepan large enough for all your fruit pieces and cover with water and the juice of 1 lemon. You can also add some castor sugar for sweetness if you like this is up to you but I wouldn’t add more than  3/4 cup otherwise you’ll enter jam territory.

(4) cook until fruit start to gently break up and adjust sweetness to your taste.

(5) at this point you can simply transfer to a container and eat or you can spoon into sterilised jars and store for future use. Its that easy.

p.s if you are feeling particularly Urban Nanna-ish you are welcome to send me your recipes to publish for other readers (and me) to try.
