Peaches and nectarines from France are at their best in late summer and there are plenty of them, so serving one of each per person is not too extravagant. This low-fat recipe uses firm fruits which are poached in a redcurrant and orange syrup.
Wash the peaches thoroughly to remove some of the fluff before poaching. If you prefer the fruit skinless, you will find the skin easier to remove after cooking - just pinch it and it will come away easily. For extra flavour, stir 3 tbsp orange liqueur into the cooled syrup.
