Succulent seasonal fruit and a simple syrup form the basis of this fresh-tasting treat, the perfect finish to a light meal, or a terrific topping for ice cream.

Ingredients

2
cups water
1
cup sugar
Juice of 1 lime
1
sprig fresh basil
4
nectarines, peeled, cut into chunks
4
peaches, peeled, cut into chunks
1
cup dark sweet cherries, pitted, halved
1
cup canned or fresh pineapple chunks

Directions

  • 1 In heavy saucepan, heat sugar, water, lime juice and basil over high heat, stirring occasionally, until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat; discard basil sprig.
  • 2 In large glass bowl, mix nectarines, peaches, cherries and pineapple. Pour sugar syrup over fruit; stir to coat. Refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 hour.
Tips
