160 calories/serving


3 tbsp water 45 mL
2 tbsp sugar 24 g
1/2 tbsp gingerroot, grated 7 g
1 star anise [optional] 1 g
2 peaches, yellow, firm-ripe 300 g
200 g cherries 20


  1. Pour the water and sugar into a saucepan. Add the grated ginger and the star anise (optional). Heat over medium-low heat until the sugar is totally dissolved and a clear syrup is obtained, about 1-2 min.
  2. Peel the peaches, cut them into quarters or segments then add them to the pan. Cook over low heat 2-3 min (do not overcook otherwise they will become watery). Take the peaches out of the pan and transfer to a bowl.
  3. Add the cherries to the pan (pitted or unpitted, as you prefer). Cook them 3-4 min.
  4. Let cool down about 10 min, then remove the star anise and serve into cups, placing the peaches on the bottom and the cherries on top. Spoon the syrup on top of the fruits.
