PEACHES AND NECTARINES WITH ROSEMARY AND HONEY SYRUP

Similar fruits make pleasing salads. Nectarines and peaches, both stone fruit, work well together because of their similar textures.

1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup water
1 sprig (4-1/2 inches long) fresh rosemary; more for garnish
4 medium white or yellow peaches (or 2 of each)
4 medium white or yellow nectarines (or 2 of each)

DIRECTIONS:

Combine the honey, sugar, and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the sugar dissolves. Add the rosemary and reduce the heat to low. Cook for 7 minutes to let the rosemary infuse. Strain through a fine sieve, let cool, and refrigerate to chill completely.

Just before serving, halve and pit the peaches and nectarines. Cut the fruit into 1/4-inch slices and put them in a large serving bowl. Pour on just enough of the rosemary syrup to lightly coat the fruit, about 6 tablespoons. Garnish with fresh sprigs of rosemary, if you like.

Serves six; yields 3/4 cup syrup.
