Honey Lavendar Poached Peaches


4 ripe, firm peaches
1/4 cup dry white wine, or water
1/4 cup honey
3 sprigs fresh lavender
dash salt

Peel the skins of the peaches. Cut the peaches in half and remove the pit. In a skillet or saute pan, add wine, honey, and lavender and a dash of salt. Bring the liquid to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, then add the peach halves and simmer, covered for 10 minutes. Remove the peach halves, set aside. Increase the heat to medium high and reduce the sauce by half, about 5 minutes.

Optional - serve with vanilla ice cream and the sauce drizzled over all with toasted almond slices.
