What better way to enjoy ripe, delicious summer fruit? I think I will be eating this every day this summer…
Summer Fruit Infusion
- 3/4 c water
- 1 T brown sugar
- 1 T agave
- 4 plums, halved
- 4 nectarines, quartered
- 1/2 t dried lavender buds
- 1/2 t lemon zest
- 1/2 t vanilla
Put water, sugar, agave, lavender, zest and vanilla in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil for a few minutes to dissolve the sugar. Strain to remove the lavender buds, putting the liquid back in the pan. Lower heat to simmer and carefully add the nectarines. Partially cover and let cook for 5 minutes. Add the plums, partially cover, and cook 5 minutes more. Remove from heat and let stand, uncovered, 10 minutes to thicken.
While it is perfect just as is, why not pour over your favorite dairy-free ice cream? I used kov caramel colada (got it at Whole Foods) and it was fantastic!!
Feel free to substitute any fruit you have on hand – it would be just as delicious with peaches, apricots, and even berries!
