Peaches in saffron

Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
6 larges Unripe peaches
¾ cup Sugar
¼ teaspoon Spanish saffron threads
1 Dried red chile pepper; (arbol)
10 Allspice berries
2 Bay leaves
1 Piece Fresh ginger - (1" long); peeled, and
Cut lengthwise into 3 slices
6 cups Water
Mint sprigs; for serving
Curly; long strips of lemon zest, for serving

With a sharp vegetable peeler, peel the peaches and set them aside. In a large non-reactive saucepan, combine the sugar, saffron, chile, allspice berries, bay leaves, ginger and water. Over medium-low heat, stir until the sugar has dissolved. Increase the heat and bring the mixture to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the peaches and continue simmering for about 30 minutes, or until the peaches are tender but not mushy. Turn them occasionally so that all sides take the color of the saffron evenly. They are done when a toothpick inserted into the fruit will go halfway through easily. Transfer the peaches with a slotted spoon to individual plates or a serving platter, let cool and refrigerate. Garnish with mint and lemon zest. This recipe yields 6 servings.
