  • 6 ripe peaches
    6 cups water
    400 g (14 oz) sugar
    ½ vanilla pod, cut open
    3 tbsp whipped cream
    500 g (1 lb) strawberries (wild strawberries are excellent)
    ½ cup sparkling Clairette wine or Proseco
    3 tbsp finely cut shelled pistachio nuts


  • Gently drop the peaches into a pan of boiling water and cook for 1 minute. Drain the peaches and peel them carefully.

    Bring the 6 cups water with 350 g (12 oz) of the sugar and the vanilla pod to the boil in a medium saucepan. Add the peeled peaches and simmer for about 10 minutes. Allow the peaches to cool in the syrup.

    Beat the remaining sugar and the whipped cream.

    Blend the strawberries into a coarse purée. Fold the strawberries and the sparkling wine into the cream and refrigerate until needed.

    Place the drained peaches in a serving bowl. Spoon the strawberry sauce over the fruit or to the side, sprinkle with pistachio nuts and serve.
