Poached Fruit

This recipe can be used for almost any fruit – vary according to personal taste.

2 pears

2 peaches

2 nectarines

3 plums

3 dates

Stone and quarter all fruit. Place ½ cup water and ¼ cup Rhubarb Syrup in a saucepan with one cinnamon stick, two star anise and a scraped vanilla pod.  Heat to near boiling turn to low heat. Add pears, nectarines, dates, peaches. Cover and poach gently for 10 minutes. Add plums and a tablespoon of lime juice. Poach a further 5 minutes or until plums soften.  Fruit is best if it retains some firmness.  Remove from heat, add a liberal drizzle of Rhubarb Syrup.  Eat hot or cold with large dollops of natural yoghurt or vanilla ice-cream or thick cream.  Also great in the morning with muesli!

Use Rhubarb Syrup to:

  • swirl in natural yoghurt

  • drizzle over ice-cream

  • glaze roast pork

  • make a vinaigrette

  • brush over an oven warm teacake
